I grew up playing soccer and stumbled upon cycling around age 11. A long time family friend brought me to his bike shop one day and seeing all those bikes was enough for me to never touch a soccer ball again. Since that day the wheels have never stopped turning.
I started out in the mountain bike world and was quickly turned on to cyclocross; this weird mix of mountain bike and road racing, then sprinkle a little steeplechase in there. Basically it’s a bunch of skinny dorks riding roads bikes in the mud in the middle of winter. Cyclocross has been my primary discipline for the past 5 years. In the process I have been able to travel the globe, race in World Championships and win a National Title along with numerous national caliber events.
In the summers I spend most of my time in the dirt, riding with friends and racing everything from Cross Country to Enduro. There is nothing better than getting lost in the woods on an all day epic ride with your homies! During the MTB season, I also work with a local High School team to help grow the sport and get kids stoked on riding just like I am.
