Ted is one my favorite people on the planet; no joke, he leads with his heart and has always been a straight shooter. He is one of the few of us left that does things just because "it's the right thing to do". I met Ted working with a tight little crew in Greenpoint and regret every day that I had to make the choice to leave for another position. I miss having daily chats with Ted and how swimming in the rivers around Manhattan is like a walk in the park for him. God Speed you my dear friend and thank you for your passion.

Stuff About Me:


I’m a native Brooklynite.  My day job as a social worker involves helping people recover their sense of self and overcome obstacles.  I love Swim Free because it facilitates individuals from diverse backgrounds to get in and enjoy the waters (which cover ¾ of the planet) confidently and safely.

It all started when I joined the Coney Island Polar Bear Club in 2009 and started getting a taste for extreme challenges.  I soon met with Coney Island Brighton Beach Open Water Swimmers (CIBBOWS), it was game on ever since.  Now, I love open water swimming and can’t get enough.  Taking on a Triathlon is taking it up a notch.  I feel like I’m in good condition.  I’m training hard and smart in the limited time I have available.  I look forward to crossing the finish line for myself and all my supporters who are donating or supporting me in other ways. 

Swim Free™ (, is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the health improvement of children and adults through swim with a mission focused on learn-to-swim, water safety and enjoyment, and water cleanliness.

My goal is to finish this race and to raise over $1,200 for Swim Free and their mission while doing it.
