My Story

I was a rower in high school and got my start racing bikes in 2009 at the Little 500 at Indiana University (made famous by the 1979 film ‘Breaking Away’). I got hooked and began racing on the road thereafter. However, as a dad of two boys with a corporate career in digital health, the energy and time required to compete at the elite level of road cycling was no longer compatible with my lifestyle. I was ready to hang up my wheels for good in 2020 when I stumbled into Zwift at the start of the covid-19 pandemic – initially as a way to simply stay fit, but it’s become so much more than I ever imagined. I’ve made great friends and teammates across the world whom I never would have had the chance to race and train with otherwise. I also grew up on a steady diet of video games – so the combination of cycling + gaming is very enjoyable.. 

Favorite video game: Final Fantasy 7

How you discovered Zwift

Stumbled into Zwift in early 2020 due to covid-19, initially as a way to simply stay fit. Have really enjoyed the gaming aspect and how it fits into a busy lifestyle as a father of 2 with a day job. Have enjoyed meeting and racing with people I otherwise would have never had the chance to.

Real life athletics background

Was a rower in high school. Got started racing bikes in 2009 at the Little 500 at Indiana University (made famous by the movie ‘Breaking Away’). Have been racing on the road for the ~ 11 years since. Result i’m most proud of is winning the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Road Race Championship.

I’m allergic to cats but my wife and I own 4 of them… and a dog. I’d also like to go travel to Mars some day when commercial space flight is available.
