February 19, 2018

Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 1, 2018. That’s the day I’m going to be on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire,” so tune in!

This has been nearly a year-long process, most of which I’ve kept secret from most people. I auditioned last May and taped the episode at the end of July, in Las Vegas. I was told when we taped it that it would air at some point between September and May, and I would only get a week or two heads up. I got the heads up, and it’s finally airing. On March 1st!

I’ve put together a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) with everything you need to know to tune in. Keep reading!

My First VOLCANO Workout!

February 15, 2018

The title doesn’t refer to some hot, trendy new workout. It refers to an actual volcano – a real-life mountain forged from magma that oozed through the earth’s crust, violently altering the landscape of our planet.

I wasn’t in any danger, though. This particular volcano has been extinct for 300,000 years. But it’s a volcano nonetheless. And I worked out there. ON A VOLCANO! I was geeking out. I still am! Read the rest of this entry »


Eating and Playing in Portland: Salads, Drag Queens, and… SASQUATCH!

I ate a lot of salads. I love them, and Read the rest of this entry »


Watch the KGW Local News Story About Me!

February 13, 2018

I’m famous in Portland! Check out the KGW local news piece about me that aired last week to promote the Fight For Air Climb:

It’s great! And I’m really surprised at how long it is. We filmed a lot of stuff, and I thought it would get edited down to maybe 45-60 seconds, but they used nearly everything – and the story is 3:30 long!

I’ve Been Called a “Celebrity Stair Climber” and No One Can Take That Title Away From Me! (2018 Portland Fight For Air Climb Race Recap)

February 11, 2018

Some Sunday mornings are meant for sleeping in and lazing about. Other Sunday mornings are meant for racing up 200 stories! Guess which experience I had yesterday?

That’s the US Bancorp Tower, in Portland, Oregon, and I climbed the 40-story stairwell inside five times. It was quite the morning, in ways both expected and unexpected. Read the rest of this entry »


Did You Miss My Bowflex Breakfast Club Interview? Watch It Here!

February 8, 2018

Wednesday was a pretty special day. I shared my story with lots of people, in a couple different settings. First up was a bright and early appearance on Bowflex Breakfast Club, a live show on Facebook hosted by fitness expert (and my buddy) Tom Holland.

Thanks to my sister Laura for the screengrab!

We talked for nearly an hour about weight loss and fitness, and while it’s all kind of a blur to me now, I got all sorts of great feedback afterward. Viewers were Read the rest of this entry »
