When the photography world started changing he made a career transitionn, goingback to school and getting a degree in exercise science. it didn't take long for him to landed a job as a Personal Trainer at Equinox in NYC, working his way up from Tier 1 to Tier 3. But, his passion was in Cycling and Triathlons. So he started coaching athletes, just a few at first. As his reputation grew of getting his clients to their goals. After doing that for a few years, he reached out to Paul Levine of Signature Cycles in NYC. Paul and Signature had a reputation for getting athletes in the best possible position on road & tri bikes.
So he started volunteering his photography skills to photograph the bikes in exchange for lessons in not just bike fitting but all thing cycling related.
