Garrett is a man of many layers. Olympic gold-medalist, passionate foodie, adoring grandson, cowboy enthusiast, accidental traveler, family man, and teacher to name a few.
A member of Team USA since 2005, Garrett lives in Austin, TX. He continues to train with the incomparable Coach Eddie Reese at the University of Texas, after graduating from UT in 2008. His dedication in the pool has paid off in accomplishments and experiences around the world, but he remains hard at work, pushing himself each day towards new goals in the water.
Through the years, since being diagnosed with high blood pressure, Garrett has also pursued a culinary path in hopes of improving his health through better nutrition. It’s been a wild ride that has landed him in some of the most prestigious and exciting kitchens in the world with incredible chefs, gold medalists of food. He’s taken that knowledge and funneled it back in the form of cooking classes, charity events, foodie tweets, authored news media, and posts on the AthleticFoodie blog.
Garrett’s a man on a mission. In the pool, in the kitchen, and here at AthleticFoodie. He believes everything he’s learned about food and fitness has dramatically changed how his body works and how he feels. He created AthleticFoodie with his family to help bring that same change to you and your health.
