Wild West boy- born in AZ, then moved to MT, and have been in Reno NV for over 20 years now. I started riding and racing bikes when I was 18 as a way to avoid the typical college party life. Quickly fell in love with XC mountain bike racing and spent 5 or so years climbing up to a lowly semi-pro level. Took more than my fair share of ass kickings on the national race circut, followed by some time off. Now I enjoy racing Cat1 mtb and gravel racing, while helping out with our local Reno Devo Junior Mtb development program. In my spare time, I can be found traveling with my beautiful wife Carli, exploring the mountains with our boxer pup Ethel, or working on our house remodel.
