I am an adventure cyclist, writer, route maker and explorer. I use my experiences exploring by bicycle to inspire and encourage others to try something new, to test themselves, and to use the bicycle as a tool to learn more about the world around them. To read my personal story, click here.
I came from owning a bicycle shop in Loveland, Ohio to being the first to traverse the country East to West on dirt roads, along with my partner. My documentation of our 3-month journey on social media and on Bikepacking.com inspired cyclists around the world. We were awarded 2015 Explorers of the Year by Bikepacking.com and have been featured in Outside Magazine, Bicycling Magazine, Bicycle Times, Adventure Journal, and countless blogs.
These days, I continue to travel and share my experiences from the road through photos and stories. Currently, I am an Adventure Ambassador for Specialized Bicycle Components and write stories for blogs and magazines. For the past 3-years I have ridden my bicycle and camped over tens of thousands of miles throughout the United States, Canada, Baja California, Spain, and Morocco. I was recently featured on the Podcast, We Got To Hang Out. My bicycle route and travel guides have been published on Bikepacking.com and used for corporate rides like The New Belgium Ramble Ride. My stories have been published in print in Adventure Journal, Adventure Cyclist Magazine, Bunyon Velo and commissioned for the websites, Bikepacking.com, Adventure-journal.com, Adventurecycling.org and the U.S. National Whitewater Center.
