ABOUT ME

Life is evolving. I moved to Colorado in 2016 from South Florida. I started moutain biking early on while living in Florida. The started road riding to improve mountain bike skills. Then got into road racing. Then started training on the track to improve my sprints for road. In recent years, I have gotten into long distance bike packing. Bike packed across Ireland, lower Florida, Durango to Moab, and most recently Telluride to Moab. Outside of cycling, I do enjoy hiking and have taken up trail running as well. Pretty much anything that lets me outside in this amazing place we live, I will embace it!
