About Me

I spent most of my life running in Central Florida. I started running at Howard Middle School, and went on to Edgewater High School where I was on the 1994 4A State Championship Cross Country team. I finished my career at the University of Central Florida. After college, I coached Cross Country and Track at Troy University. This is also where I started timing. I was handed a laptop with an old version of Hy-tek DOS and told we had a meet in 6 weeks and I needed to learn how to time before then. In 2002 I came back to Orlando and started working as a private timing contractor and I have been timing and working events ever since. I formed CK Timing & Event Mangement in the Fall of 201l and bought into Elite Timing and Event Management as well. I closed CK Timing shortly after and have been Running Elite Timing with my Partner Mike Hill Ever Since
