I am a coach on the Peaks Coaching Group team and we are the experts in training with a power meter and data analysis. We can help you with race tactics, nutrition, power training, skill development and we have 4-6 cycling camps each year.

There are many service levels that we offer. Please see detailed descriptions on We provide consulting and custom coaching weekends.


I started cycling as a way to stay in shape and enjoy the outdoors, but I quickly progressed to challenging mountainous centuries and other long distance events. My longest event was a cross-country tour riding from San Diego to Charleston, South Carolina, in just 23 days. Next a friend picked up on my abilities and competitive spirit and suggested that I sign up for a local circuit race.

Racing seemed like a logical, natural progression, but I soon learned that the training and riding tactics that made me successful in long-distance events did not prepare me for the shorter, more intense efforts of racing. After a couple of frustrating years trying to master the art of racing, I decided to hire a coach. Once I worked with a coach and followed a periodized training plan, I quickly moved from “pack fill” to podium finisher and winner.

I enjoy all types of riding, including criterium races, road races, gran fondos, mountainous centuries, time trials, and the occasional cruise on my mountain bike or 'cross bike.
