Of Note: 

  • Creative Director, Sketchfolio
  • Husband of Jenny Simpson, 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist and 2011 IAAF World Champion at 1500m
  • People ask all the time who would win in a mile race between them. They've often both raced the Fifth Avenue Mile; he used to run 4-5 seconds faster but in 2019 he barely edged her, 4:15.9 to 4:16.1. "She has all but run me down," he said. "My retirement from racing the mile is imminent"
  • Favorite running memory is watching Jenny win silver at the 2017 World Championships in the 1500m
  • He calls getting his OTQ "a dream come true"
