ABOUT ME:Screen Shot 2018-06-26 at 11.13.47 AM

Born in Argentina and moved to the US at 12-years-old. Went to school in California and received a Doctorate in Physical therapy in 2006. I specialize in treating spinal cord injuries, and neurological conditions. Last year my wife and I opened a paralysis recovery center in Honolulu. Athletically I had never ran a marathon or participated in any endurance sports until 30-years-old. Since then I’ve competed and trained for numerous events. My goal was to get fitter into my 30’s and beyond. I particularly love running and competing and have done triathlons of every distance, open water swims, road and mountain bike races, trail runs, marathons, and ultra marathons or every distance up to 100 miles. I’m currently training for the Boston Marathon in April having qualified through the Honolulu marathon with a 2:59. My goal is to better myself as well as inspire those recovering from major life-changing conditions.

CAREER RUNNING HIGHLIGHTS:

Going from being a sub-4 Marathoner to a sub -3 marathoner and qualifying for Boston was pretty huge for me.

I use compression to aid recovery after racing or training. During runs it helps to decrease onset of fatigue. OS1st offers quality medical grade compression products.
