Growing up I was always on my BMX bike with a great group of friends. We made an amazing system of dirt trails and jumps that people would come from all over to ride. But about the time I started to drive the bike was left behind and my interests switched.

It wasn’t until 2010 that I borrowed an old mountain bike from a friend and hit the trails in Michigan. After about 6 months I knew I had found my passion and went all in and never looked back. After moving to Virginia in 2012 I found a very welcoming and thriving mountain bike community and never thought something as simple as a bicycle would help shape who I am and who my closest friends are.

Racing was a way for me to meet more like minded people and to improve my skills. My inner competition came out and doing well is always rewarding but the fun is what brings me back each time.
