BIO

I have been on a bike as long as I can remember. As a kid, bikes were my wings- they gave me freedom to explore. I began racing on the road at the age of 15. Over the years I rose to professional ranks in Road, MTB and Cyclocross. I spent 4 years racing the domestic USPRO NRC road calendar, enjoying the opportunity to ride with many of our sports’ top international athletes. These days I can enjoy the balance of life and sport so many athletes seek. My careeer is diverse, reaching into all aspects of bike racing. My most recent successes are a National and World Cyclocross title. Now I feel drawn to the rise of MTB Enduro! Competition has taken me around the world both on and off-road. I’m truly one of the lucky ones to be able to call my passion my career and to be supoported in so many ways. Bike racing is in my Pedigree.
