Hometown: Egg Harbor Township, NJ.
Current home: Aurora, CO by way of Annapolis, Maryland and Alice Springs, Australia.
Racing disciplines: Cross, Road and a little mountain.
Started racing: 2013.
Favorite race/racing highlights: Any race I can wear a costume to!  I love the Parker cross course, Bannock Street Crit, and doing team time trials with my awesome teammates.
Bikes: Trek Madone, Specialized Crux, an old Trek Fuel turned into a cruiser bike and I’m on the hunt for a new mountain bike.
Pedal preference: Look on the road and SPD for cross and mtn biking.
Rollers or trainer? Trainer, but I love my spin bike in the basement so I’m not dragging my bike inside at 5 am all winter long!
Bibs or shorts? Bibs
Skinsuit or kit? Depends.  Skinsuits are pretty awesome, but they always make me wish I didn’t have that brownie and wine the night before!
Water or drink mix? One of each.
Favorite mid-ride nutrition: Anything Honey Stinger, dried apricots, homemade bars and PBR (kidding…well, kinda!)
Place I would most like to ride a bike…..I’d love to race some of the awesome cross courses in Belgium and any beautiful coastal road rides! Is it time for a vacation?
When I am not riding a bike I……am hanging out with my family and friends, traveling, enjoying happy hour and looking for new adventures!
