Thanks for being here!

I am a cycling coach focused on working with athletes in all Road (Road Race, TT, & Criteriums), Track, Cyclocross, and Gravel disciplines of the sport. My priorities are outside the realm of just building training plans. More importantly, the riding skills, racing tactics, bike handling, and balance with other aspects of life on a whole are what produce effective and skilled bike riders. It's about building towards what is sustainable, not just what is attainable.
