A magnetic presence on every pool deck, BJ has been swimming competitively in New York City since he was 8-years-old. When he was 11, he joined Asphalt Green's well-regarded AGUA swim team on the Upper East Side. At AGUA he quickly shot through the local ranks and was soon traveling the country, competing at a wide variety of USA Swimming meets. BJ went on to attend the Univeristy of Maryland, where he was a member of the Terrapins men's swim team. He is currently studying acting and film, with the clear and realistic goal of winning a much deserved Oscar in the near future. Clearly a man who dreams big, BJ notes that his goal for each lesson is to teach every child to "swim like Poseidon himself."
