Inspiration Leta Andrews, Coaching Legend

Celebrate the human body as an amazing machine that can accomplish far more than we think.

Human Potential Limited by Imagination

I seek to improve my methods and knowledge in order to attain efficiency and progress.

Seeking Meaningful Data through Technology

Winnning is the ultimate manifestation of my efforts built on top of the gifts I was born with.

My Story

Although my areas of interest may seem non-congruent, to me they fit together very harmoniously. I am parked at the intersection of sports, health, and technology.

I graduated with a biology degree from UCLA, but my journey has led me to be immersed in systems that require a great deal of long-term dedication to begin to grasp the depth of them. The deeper I get, the more it seems there is to discover. From 2001-2005, I studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in Austin, TX. In 2008, I started learning to code and program software via self-study. I love a big challenge and have never been afraid to go after one that is worthwhile. There is always the possibility of failure, but what you gain in the process always proves to be more valuable than the result. Winning is an amazing thrill and is hard to match. I would love to help equip others who are willing to put forth the effort to achieve success, and so I named my company Winning Edge Apps.

Mother of Two

The human body is resilient. Having kids gives laser focus your time management skills.

Tech Entrepreneur

I love coding! Technology can take the guessing game out of training.

Acupuncturist

Traditional Chinese Medicine is an amazing system for observing nature and health.

High Jumper

Why do I keep doing it? It is in my nature and it is a process of continual refinement.

Moments in Time

Acuff, Age 10

Age 10 Long jumping and sprinting in summer youth track in South Texas

Obsessed with robots, I tried to construct one using a cardboard box and the guts from broken electronics. It seemed viable at the time.

ucla jumper

1993-1997 UCLA- Great successes and battles with injuries and surgery.

As a result of my collegiate injuries, I became a consumer of health care modalities and first experienced acupuncture, which was fantastc in my case.

smiling face

1997 New personal best of 2 meters or 6'6 3/4". Forrays into the modeling world.

Warning: The youth will drain from your face, but will hopefully be replaced with wisdom.

Athens celebration

2004 Ecstatic- first attempt at 1.99m or 6'6 3/4", ending up in fourth place.

I was reaching new heights that year with a new personal best of 2.01m or 6'7" in Zurich.

baby daughter

2010 My daughter arrives. I had no expectation to return to competition.

What did I used to do with all that free time? I did not exercise for at least a year after she was born.

amusing jump

2012 Reports of my career being in the toilet were greatly exaggerated.

I created my first sports video analysis app for iOS and used it to make the Team for London 2012. I compared my technique to high jump greats.

comeback jump

2012 Olympic Trials was my third meet after my daughter's birth.

Making a fifth Olympic Team equaled the U.S. record for track and field athletes. I conquered a lot of inefficiencies in my technique.

second baby

2012 Birth of a tiny wild man. I expend a lot of calories chasing him.

This time I knew I would return to competition for unfinished business. My son loves going to the track with sister and mom.
