He holds the title of 2017 PanAm age group champion and 2017 ITU age group world champion. Steve has organized and run 1st-timer adult triathlon training clinics.

Steve says, “I’m fascinated with the ability for a single sport to encompass so many different elements that require one’s attention. More importantly, a sport that allows one to improve their work/life/sport balance, discipline, dedication, work ethic, mental fortitude, and a love for 3 sports at once.”
