Having a passion for adventure, athletics and all things outdoors, my love of cycling began from a very early age! Growing up in the suburbs of Baltimore in a neighborhood, where kids of all ages were on 2 wheels, cruising around the block, racing up and down the driveway hills and off-road in various backyards, I loved it! All of it! To me, my bike represented the ultimate freedom to explore not only the outdoors, but also, my adventurous spirit.
I began riding seriously after college. I road in several charity events (one in Pacific Northwest in 2010 and again, in a multi-day cycling event, overseas, in 2013). In 2014, I began to focus on the competitive side of cycling!
From long distance road cycling events in the mountains, to middle distance multi-sport events, to riding my single speed around town, my zest for cycling (and the outdoors) never ceases!!
I ride because its an extension of who I am. On and off the bike, I put my heart and soul into the things that I love, and cycling is one of them!! The teamwork, intrinsic gratification and the sheer joy of being in the outdoors, is invaluable!!
