I am a middle Tennessee native. I have been a competitive cyclist for 19 years. I started out in multi-sport and gradually moved into endurance and XC mountain biking. When I am not biking, I work in ministry. I am the pastor of a church in Nashville. I am the founder of a non-profit called the Urban Bicycle Food Ministry. This organization gathers volunteers and delivers food and supplies to people affected by homelessness and poverty in the Nashville area, all via bicycle.
I love racing mountain bikes and training for events. It is my happy place. I love the adventure of racing in new places and taking on new challenges. I am always looking for ways to push my personal limits, may it be signing up for a race that challenges and/or intimidates me or just going out to challenge some Strava PRs. Endurance cycling is part of my identity.
I am a client of BPC Performance coaching. Jonny Brown (2018 US Pro Nat'l Champion) is my personal coach.
