I grew up in a house obsessed with hockey and football in Buffalo, NY and wanted to be an athlete. But when I was 14 and 6’1 and 150 lbs, I realized contact sports weren’t going to be my future. When I saw “Breaking Away” and realized that endurance sports would be me hurting myself for as long as I could, I knew I was home. I’ve been coaching endurance athletes from every walk of life for the past decade. I thrive on learning, racing and teaching anything related to bikes. I honed my chops racing road and triathlon. And now I’m a cyclocross junkie. I married the favorite person I ever met. We have a toddler son and are expecting a daughter spring 2014.
