Grew up in Iowa City, took an early interest in bicycles riding BMX. Now I am primarily a utilitarian rider, commuting and hauling whatever you can fit on a cargo bike. I have been turning wrenches at W.O.B since 2006. My favorite rides are loading up the touring bike and hitting the road or trail, also riding with my daughter, Amelia, and girlfriend, Rachel.

Current bikes in rotation are my Surly Long Haul Trucker, Pugsley, and Big Dummy. My other interests are playing music and building string instruments.
