Learning new things and going on adventures are my favorite things! I’m always striving to live a simpler, more sustainable lifestyle and am always looking for ways to decrease my footprint and help others to do the same. I spend my free time cycling (of course! Mountain biking, mostly), backpacking, everything water sports, rock climbing and rocking out.
It’s always tough to choose a favorite, but I have to say that riding the western coast of Portugal from Lisbon to Lagos was my most awe-inspiring ride to date. With beautiful open country right on the coast and terrain varying from sand dunes to sheer cliffs, it was the perfect start to a 6-week European coast tour.

I’ve done quite a variety of things from engineering and management in the manufacturing industry to selling and investing in real estate to my most recent venture owning a construction company. My favorite job was working at a local bike shop, though!
