Martha’s Vineyard and the sport of triathlon are two very dear things in my heart. I have been coming to Martha’s Vineyard since I was born, and I have lived on the island full time since 2008. Over the years, I have come to love and respect this amazing place that I call home. The beautiful scenery, incredible beaches, and a close nit community makes the island so special.

My love for triathlon starting on the island. I will never forget the feeling of crossing the finish line of my first race. It is this feeling that continues to inspire me to race and promote the sport to others. In 2014, I had the opportunity to spearhead the 1st Annual Vineyard Triathlon. In 2019, I am thrilled to work with Bill Burnett and his team at Streamline Events to together build the Vineyard Triathlon to be a premier New England event.

Whether you are racing for a win, or trying to finish your first triathlon, the Vineyard Triathlon is the perfect race for you. My goal for this event is to continue to share my love of the sport, to promote healthy competition, and to give athletes a chance to experience Martha’s Vineyard.

See you on the island!
