What do you do for work?
I retired from the Rockland Police Department after 25 years in the greatest job of all time. I loved every minute of it. I work details in the summer. 

What would you like us to know about you and your family?
I married my best friend on a beach in the Cayman Islands 18 years ago and we have a 10 month old puppy named Harley. 

What is one thing that we may not know about you?
I can make a large pepperoni pizza in 36 seconds 

How long have you been CrossFitting? 

16-½ years. 

What time do you typically train? 

9:00 am. Used to be 6:00 am for years while I was working, retirement is good. 

What is your favorite lift and why? 

Squat snatch. Because it is so darn difficult 

What is your favorite WOD and why? 

Murph. Because it is grueling and for what it stands for 

What are your current life goals? 

To remain healthy and enjoy every day 

What is your most memorable time as a CrossFitter? 

When I was part of the Cynergy Team that made the Regionals and when I competed in Albany, NY in the Quarter Finals 

How has CF impacted your life outside of the box? 

It helped me remain healthy and strong throughout a solid police career 

I believe that our bodies can do so much more than we think. Training with Cynergy may save people from a heart attack, and certainly may help people survive one.
