About the Owners
Growing up, dance was a huge part of my life. When I wasn't attending my local high school of the arts for musical theater I was at the dance studio taking class or teaching. I was a dance major at Chapman University until an injury sidelined the hope of pursuing dance as a career. I taught dance to all ages for many years and am very excited to get back to teaching!
While living temporarily in Southern California we discovered My Gym. Attending class was usually the highlight of my oldest daughter's week. I really fell in love with the experience and curriculum, it was so much more fun than the other mommy and me classes we had tried. It was wonderful to see how much she learned in class and how she connected with the teachers and other kids. When we moved back to Oregon and realized there was not a local My Gym we decided to open one! I'm looking forward to bringing the fun and fitness of My Gym to children in Sherwood and the surrounding cities.
My wife, two awesome kids, and I live in Beaverton. When I'm not working you'll likely find me exploring the many parks in the area with my kids or eating at my favorite gluten free friendly restaurants. My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice, and favorite drink is a great chai latte.
I am very excited to be back in Oregon. I've been a My Gym Owner for over 14 years, in the S.F. Bay Area (Palo Alto and San Carlos). Recently my wife and I moved back Oregon to be close to our kids, grandchildren, relatives, and friends. I graduated from Lewis & Clark College, and married my wife in Portland. Plus, all 3 of our girls were born in the Portland metro area. A work transfer moved our family to California, and we decided to stay to help my parents. So after all these years, it is great to be an Oregonian again.
Sports have always been a part of my life. After coaching my 3 daughters in various sports, I made the decision to change occupations and do something that had to do with healthy fitness for children. Thus, began my My Gym Career. My two My Gym's have been very successful, receiving excellence awards in every year of operation. I was Franchisee of the Year, received an Achievement Award, and have had numerous Director's who received Director of the Year awards. Recently I sold My Gym Palo Alto in March of 2019, and currently still own My Gym San Carlos.
I feel fortunate to be part of the My Gym organization, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to bring My Gym's top notch children's fitness program to families in the community.
Just for fun, my favorite book is Curious George, and my favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz.
