I grew up all over the place, but before Bozeman, I lived in Santa Cruz, California, and went to UC Santa Cruz. Go slugs! I became passionate about bikes after touring solo in Europe, going from France to Portugal. After that experience, I spent a good amount of time shirking responsibilities and riding bikes in the redwoods.
My current goals are to try every kind of bicycle race, sustain a wheelie, unicycle and perhaps use my college degree. Other than cycling, I feel passionate about linguistics, crosswords, tiny spoons, and telemark skiing. I believe that everything is better when done outside— even mundane things like brushing your teeth, eating snacks, and sipping on coffee.
