Rusty got into triathlons while living in Hawaii and clerking for a judge after law school. His first triathlon was a sprint distance where he had to walk his borrowed road bike up a hill en route to limping across the finish line in an hour and a half. A few years later he moved to Dallas, joined a tri club, made some great friends, and in 2018 traveled to Australia as part of Team USA to compete in the ITU World Championships. In between, he’s finished countless sprint, olympic, and 70.3 events. When he’s not litigating business disputes in the courtroom, he enjoys riding his bike on the trainer with his wife, Samantha, and playing with their dog Swoop (named after the mascot for the greatest team in sports, the Philadelphia Eagles).
