Trek Travel Role:

Guide

My Passion:

I am a lover of life and all that it has to offer. I love to meet new people and hear their stories. There is nothing better than sharing good conversation with good people over the course of a meal or a bike ride. I love to ride my bike and I know this because I discovered my love for cycling in a place where most people think it is a very strange thing to do. I love to help other people find a passion for bicycles, and I try to tell them how bikes can save the world. I love traveling and all of unique cultures, foods, landscapes, relationships, and experiences that come along with it.

My Favorite Ride:

My most memorable ride is the first ride I ever did with my dad. It took seven years for me to convince him to get on a bike, we only rode two miles, and he could barely walk when we finished. But, he found a love for riding and has ridden on and off since then.

In My Previous Life:

Manager of James Brothers Bicycle Shop, goat milker on a dairy farm, bicycle racer and pedicab driver.

Education:

BA - Elementary Education, Auburn University. War Eagle!

Guiding Since:

2015

Current Home:

Beauregard, Alabama

Languages:

English, but working on Italian also.

My Rides:

I manage my bicycle ownership with the n+1 rule, so I have a few too many to list on here. However, the most note-worthy would be a custom Wildcard mountain bike, which is a local handmade bike manufacturer in my hometown.

Where you'll find me:

Bryce and Zion, Crater Lake
