The Older I Get, The Faster I was.
I moved to Colorado in 1998 specifically to mountain bike and snowboard. Sure, I may have told my parents the move was “for school”, but after getting that distraction out of the way I started enthusiastically exploring Colorado. My focus in the summer is riding mountain bikes across a variety of disciplines from cross country and trail riding, to downhill and Enduro, dual slalom, dirtjumping, and even a little racing here and there. Winter is filled primarily with skiing, having switched from snowboarding in 2009, and attempting to get 50 days on snow each season with a mix of resort and backcountry days.
In between skiing or biking I can found hiking, camping, backpacking, road cycling, sampling or brewing tasty craft beer, working on a 1970 VW desert race car, and occasionally utilizing that pesky college degree as a freelance graphic and web designer.
I also find myself in the non-profit world these days, with a tech position at the International Mountain Bicycling Association and a volunteer board position with the Colorado Mountain Bike Association. I am truly blessed in that I get to work with amazing, driven people and marry my personal passions with a career.
