I started racing bikes after moving to the DC area in 1997. Ken Bell hired me to work part-time for his budding tradeshow company, and part of the workday (or night in this case) was fitting in a break to ride mountain bikes. I soon began racing and meeting other talented racers. The world of cycling had a profound effect on me, and soon I was traveling around the world filming America’s best mountain bikers. The industry contacts I made while filming “Off Road To Athens” led to the formation of GFK – Gripped Films Kenda race team, founded in 2007.
I added road racing to the mix and not long after cyclocross. I manage Gripped Films and Gripped Racing. When not on a bike, you can find me kayaking, surfing, windsurfing, fishing, snowboarding or … well just about anything outdoors.
