Born in 1977. I Discovered bikes around 6 years old. I spent the next 6 years learning the basic mechanics by disassembling the family's bikes in our shed into weird franken-bikes. I entered my first BMX race in 1989 and never looked back. I earned my Pro license in 2004 and fell in love with mountain biking in the PNW. I currently live in Beautiful Bellingham, WA with my wife Asta and dog Roxy.
