I grew up in Oregon and learned to ride bikes on the trails outside my hometown with my dad. I'm currently the US Elite Cyclocross National Champion and have traveled across North America and Europe to race my bike in the mud and grit. I have dabbled in road racing with development teams and have had strong results at US stage races. This coming year I want to learn from some of the strongest cyclists in the world and be the best supporting teammate possible.
Aside from being a bike racer, I'm a nutrition undergraduate student at Oregon State University and enjoy riding my mountain bike as much as possible.
