Hey there!! My name is Philip. I am proudly a triple citizen being adopted from Vietnam, and raised in Colorado. Without the inspiration, drive, and support that was given to me by my parents I would not be the athlete and person I am today.

Growing up I played and competed in many sports from swimming to sailing to soccer just to name a few. Watching my father complete the Triple Bypass and Copper Triangle, I was inspired to take up and give endurance sports a shot. It was my goal by 16 that I would finish an Olympic distance triathlon, by 18 a 70.3 and by 21 a 140.6. And guess what....I DID IT! After that the rest was history; I've been competing in triathlon and endurance sports for almost 10 years now. I'm a 3x All American Swimmer and 2x All American Triathlete.

With my father being from Belgium, I enjoy quality beer, chocolate and cobbles (on my bike of course!!). Currently, I'm Active Duty Air Force serving in Germany as a Firefighter/EMT which I am extremely passionate about. Ever since I can remember I have looked up to my local firefighters and always wanted to live day to day in their boots. In my spare time I really enjoy being active in anything that has to do with the outdoors. This includes rock/ice climbing, mountaineering, photography, traveling, and meeting awesome rad people! With that......stay safe friends! Goodbye! Ciao! Vaarwel! Tchuss!
