ROB AS A COACH:  I have been a full time trainer and strength coach since 2008.  I hold a B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland as well as a number of nationally recognized training certifications. 

I began my career working at a health club in Washington DC.  After moving to Seattle I reconnected with the rowing community.  In addition to training my clients I spend time working with masters and youth rowing programs.  


I am a Strength Coach at the Pocock Rowing Center and Lake Washington Rowing Club.  I enjoy working with people who are passionate about their sports.  It’s my goal to help you get stronger and perform better in whatever it is that you are pursuing.  

ROB AS AN ATHLETE:  My experience as an athlete began in ernest as a high school runner.  I ran cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track. Cross country instilled a love a trail running which I continue to pursue.  


I eventually found rowing at the University of Maryland.  Rowing exposed me to a whole new world of hard work and competition.  I loved it.  Eventually a back injury took me out of the sport and required that I undergo surgery. 


Since college I’ve tried a lot of different activities.  Road running, open water swimming, olympic distance triathlons, and canoeing to name a few.  I currently enjoy big days in the mountains running, skiing, and climbing.  You can also find me rowing on the waterways of Seattle.  When I’m not playing outside I enjoy cooking, traveling, and relaxing with friends.
