I was born in Los Angeles, CA in 1973 and moved to San Diego, CA in 1984. I found myself in various sport activities growing up but I became most passionate about cycling. After watching a movie called American Flyers in 1985, my inspiration turned into a career. Only months after seeing the film my father bought me my first Schwinn 10 speed at a local bike shop down the street.
I received my first USCF racing license in 1987 racing as a 15-16 junior racer.
I started competing in some of the best stage races all over the USA. By the age of 18
I was already a Category 1 Racer. Then I became a Professional in 2001 and had won several local and national calendar races. I have participated in major professional stage races like the Tour of Poland, Tour of Mexico and have been a part of such professional teams, as “Monex” and “NetZero”. I even qualified for the Olympic Road Trials in 2000.
After my racing career, I brought my knowledge to the specialty retail of the bike world. Working for shops like Supergo, to managing store like Nytro Multisport and Trek superstores and continuing in the industry as a field nutritional rep for Powerbar and HoneyStinger.
I have absorbed cycling’s best education though racing and retail experience. In total, I have been racing for 26 years and have been a Category 1 racer for 21 years. I was lucky enough to race with great cyclists such as Lance Armstrong and had the opportunity to train with Jan Ullrich and his Telekom Team. I feel even more empowered as a cyclist because I have never taken any sport-enhancing drugs and I have always raced clean. I retired from professional cycling in 2004. These days I am very happy to ride just to keep in shape.
