The American Brothers
Who Am I
28 years old. 6’4”. 190lbs
I was born in El Paso, Texas, grew up in San Diego, California, and now live and work in New York City.
Because if someone gave you a ticket to do and see something uncommonly unique, could you turn it down?
Because I want to do something far beyond just myself and give back what I am more than fortunate to have.
Just because we turn into professionals doesn't mean we have to give up the personal.
Although, the extra benefits of rowing an ocean are extended periods of undernourishment, epic suntans, and blisters on my bum, the motivation, which may have begun as a selfish endeavor, very quickly touches those that we are closest to. No longer is this mine or my brother’s adventure, but our collective sister, parents, girlfriends, and friends goal. We row for them.

WHO AM I
32 years old. 6’0”. 180lbs
Texas - California - New York City. Some call it America.
Because experiencing the world second hand isn’t enough.
Because ‘if’ never sounds as good as ‘when'.
Because life will always march forward -- you have to do what it takes to hold on and enjoy the ride.
No question...this will be tough. The support of family, friends, girlfriends and strangers will be 100% vital to our success -- we can't thank you enough. Rowing the Atlantic is but a fraction (so I say now...) of what it will take to get across. We've worked hard to get here...and we're looking forward to one hell of a ride.
THINGS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO ME
Family and friends, hard work and perseverance, Friday's 5 o'clock beer, a good book or a terrible movie. Above all...a ridiculously impossible challenge
