What's your story?

I started riding when a friend introduced me in high school. I was 15. 3 years later I did the 2008 MTB World Champs in Val di Sole Italy and I got stomped. For some reason that struggle pulled me in and I have been trying to fight it ever since. I know I will never beat it, no one ever does, but the process and the journey are wholly satisfying.

What attracted you to Eliel?

Awesome custom design and really fun in house designs.

What about bikes brings you joy?

Bikes are my meditative state. I love long rides, you can get lost in the real world/ in your head.

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

I'd love to share my experiences and outlook while simultaneously shredding trail, gravel, or pounding pavement on guided bike rides.

What is important to you?

Fighting Climate change, being truthful, inclusion, and keeping an open mind. "What got you here wont keep you here."
