Steve has been a dedicated athlete since first taking up club swimming and travel soccer year-round as a kid. Developing into a solid high school athlete, he accelerated on the Ithaca College swim team, at one point holding state meet, conference, and school records & still holding top 10 team times in freestyle and backstroke events.
Steve ventured to Colorful Colorado to pursue a career in recreation after Ithaca. He quickly found a new love in XTERRA: the Premier Off Road Triathlon. XTERRA filled a void in Steve's athletic career, giving him the racing, competition, and camaraderie he sought after college ... an easy transition from a highly regarded D3 swimming program. "Triathlon now represents to me a lifestyle more than anything else, something I love investing myself in."
