What's your story?

I am a guy who loves to inspire and motivate anyone I meet. I am a believer in growing and thriving together. I work in the Technology field, forecasting and planning for my company and sister sites in the emerging Asian markets. I have a great passion for cycling, it is a sport I have found great victories in not just in competition but in life as well. It has shown me that we can accomplish and obtain whatever we want with consistency and passion. Cycling is a beautiful journey we all should experience. My goal is to touch as many lives as possible through my platforms. Let's keep winning in life together.

What attracted you to Eliel?

My former team director Mike Faello introduced me to the line over 5 years ago now. I have been Eliel longest standing ambassador. The quality of the gear and the people that I have got to know over the years has been the two major things for me. Of course, the colors and style play a role too.

What about bikes brings you joy?

The freedom it gives, and the chance to explore.

What are your goals for the future? On and off the bike...

On the bike is to continue to inspire and touch lives while trying to win a bike race or two. Off the bike is to continue to find success in my professional life and lead and guide my teams around me. At the end of the day I want to touch lives and help people understand they are capable of success and to thrive daily.

What is important to you?

People and relationships.
