Dean joined the Land Warrior/SFF team in 2020. CrossFit has provided him an opportunity to learn and practice many new athletic skills and he enjoys the team environment; being part of a community of like-minded athletes that support each other equally through good times and tough workouts. Immediately hooked after his first CrossFit workout in 2016, he embraced the sport, improved his nutrition and is now in the best shape of his life. He earned his CrossFit Level 1 on Super Bowl Sunday, 2019. Soon thereafter he was coaching, mentoring and inspiring his athletes. Dean’s day job is at Slalom Consulting where he manages business and technology improvements for his clients. Being part of a vibrant community and having the physical challenge that CrossFit provides helps him to maintain a quality work/life balance. Besides CrossFit, he is an avid skier, road biker and plays softball and golf.
