I enjoy CrossFit and all outdoor activities. I coach at CrossFit NapTown and work in Safety. My wife and I moved to Indianapolis in 2013. We lived in a few areas before finally settling in Fountain Square. We are proud to call Fountain Square our new home and enjoy the many restaurants and local brewery all within walking distance as much as possible.
