Background

I started riding in 2009 just to get back and forth from school, it soon became something to do for fun. I then found out that they held races a few miles away from my house and that was it, after the first race i caught the bug. I train every chance i get, while holding down a full time job as a suspension tech at Schmidt Performance, and part time as a kennel assistant at Vom Eschenhagen Rottweilers. When it comes time to race, you'll sometimes find me volunteering my time to help set up the race courses at the Southridge events. Aside from mountain biking i love twisting a little throttle at the motocross track, training rottweilers, going to "The Sounds"concerts, and occasionally playing guitar.

Highlights

Started riding for ODISouthridgeUSA team in 2010. I was the 2011 Southridge Golden State Champion for the 19-26 sport class. Scored 5 podiums in 2011, 2 times 2nd place. I started competing in expert in 2012. First expert podium(3rd) at the 2012 Predator Night race. First official win in 2014 at the 1st Rim Nordic Enduro.

Goals

Train hard, race hard, and be on the podium as much as i can!
