Born and raised in Virginia, I was a competitive motocross racer in my youth and transitioned to ‘non-motorized’ road racing and mountain biking in college. As a beginner racer, I was fortunate enough to have access to a very supportive cycling club and benefitted from the knowledge of more experienced riders. They essentially taught me how to race my bike. While primarily a local and regional racer, I did advance all the way to a Belgian kermesse team.

My entire family enjoys bike racing, and I can be found at a cycling event somewhere across the country on any given weekend. My wife and daughter are active Road, CX, and MTB racers. I have organized both Road and CX clinics tailored to the specific needs of women and juniors. I fully understand and appreciate the resource constraints that riders face as they approach their training regimen. The ability to fit in training around family, a demanding work schedule, and other priorities is what I have done for years.

A lengthy racing career has provided me with the insight into what it takes to improve as a racer. My strength is being able to recognize what each racer needs to focus on in order to reach their goals.

I have been so fortunate to have had amazing coaches and mentors throughout my racing and coaching career, and I want to share that knowledge and experience with others. Being a racer, a coach and a mentor is my passion. I want to see all athletes succeed. It is extremely important to me that the athletes I work with not only enjoy the process, but feel that their time with me has proven beneficial and that they have become the best that they can be. This is accomplished through a collaborative process of goal setting, planning and highly efficient work.

I offer a no-nonsense, but supportive approach to coaching, providing optimized performance and designed to fit the athlete’s individual needs.
