Shoutout to LP for this solid Miley Cyrus reference and metaphors and laughter – oh and also life changing trip. Thank you. “The important thing is not to win – but to take part.” This well-known quote from Pierre de Coubertin about the importance of showing up that is very familiar in the Olympic/Paralympic realm. This summer felt like that opportunity was taken away from me. I had achieved national team standards,… Read More

(I put a “too long didn’t read” break if you want to get through some of the numbers and intracacies of team selection and just want the essence of the story. Just scroll down below and look for my TLDR break) I am working with my friend at his start up right now. We help freelancers with structure, accountability, productivity, and performance. He is a former pro basketball plaer so he has… Read More

The other evening my anxiety alarm had me up at like 3am. I laid in bed tossing and turning and just couldn’t get comfortable so I finally conceded to looking at my phone which is always the worst possible thing to do if you want to go back to sleep. I went over long jump film, thought about my approach, went over other jumpers film and just leaned into the chaotic noise… Read More

Hey gang- After the tumultuous year that will forever be famous- I will be sharing *even more* content from 2020. Here is a video I did in partnership with Hylete and Native Ground Media. This baby turned out beautiful and I want to push it before we show you an even newer project. Enjoy!

Y’all… today is Global Accessibility Awareness Day AND the day I get to finally share how honored I am to be Microsoft’s In Culture Podcast host for their newest season all about accessibility. I got to sit down with X Ambassadors keyboards player Casey Harris, former NFL athlete Steve Gleason and the founders of Unified Robotics, Kendall & Delaney Foster; who live, breathe, and fight for accessibility every day. In this new… Read More

WOW- What a time to be alive and be a professional athlete. While I am readjusting (and hopefully revamping) my life while we are all holding our breath during our century’s pandemic… Let me know what kind of content you’d like to see! I’ll start releasing some of our Picked Last in Gym Class videos as blogs before I give this site a full face lift and create a home for the… Read More

This was a facebook post originally but it was long af and my dad’s internet is being whack so hopefully it posts here!  I’m seeing a lot of NYE posts about pain from 2018 and hope for 2019. Frankly, this is a trend I’m noticing every New Year’s- people lamenting on their woes from the year prior and hoping for better. I would be lying if I didn’t say I hadn’t experienced… Read More

Let me start off by saying, this post is NOT associated with Netflix in any manner (however I would not be opposed to any movie offers tbh) but I watched the movie, “Dumplin” on a recent average night and, my friends, I was ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY. The movie is set in the fictional town of Clover City, Texas and the protagonist is a high school girl named Willowdean Dickson, daughter of a… Read More

Howdy! October is known for being a spooky time of year, but regardless if you’re afraid of ghosts and ghouls it is shaping up to be a pretty busy month. I want to share all of the events I am fortunate enough to be a part of with everybody and if you’re lucky I may be stopping in your town! 20th of October: AUSTIN, TX I am super stoked to kick off… Read More

Hi! I figured I could put all of my videos up with the Fireside Chats project I helped Ottobock Healthcare create for more online content; and the *feels* of people who live with unique circumstances. This particular one is v close to my heart. Monica is a close friend of mine over the years and it was an absolute gift to be able to sit down and talk with her. (Then maybe… Read More
