I grew up in N.J. riding Schwinn sting rays. My dad was a banker in NYC and thankfully we moved to Seattle where I raced BMX in High school. My family is unique in that we are all Multi Sport pioneers. My sisters both raced pro triathlon in the 80’s – so I had to follow suit . Our Idea of a family vacation was to qualify for Ironman and go to Kona for the World Championships! I was mostly a downhill ski racer in college at the University of Maine and did not start racing Mtn. bikes professionally ‘until’ 1987. I have also done a 4 year stint as a Pro Off-Road Triathlete and adventure racer.
My real passion is to help people understand the importance of fitness and nutrition as a lifetime ambition – not just a fleeting phase. I am a personal trainer and consult everyone from Beginners to Pro athletes on the importance of proper bike fit, equipment and nutrition.
