Bio
Riding bikes around the neighborhood with my friends was a regular part of my childhood. At age 16 I began taking out my old 26” beater mountain bike for long rides, seeing how far And how fast I could go. These long bike rides allowed me to push my body and experience a sense of real freedom. Later that year I would use the money I saved from my first job to buy a Specialized Allez road bike. 

    Soon after buying my first road bike I joined a local jr cycling team where I was fortunate to have a great community of experienced racers to teach me the fundamentals of road cycling. At age 18 I attended Lees’ McRae College in North Carolina on a cycling scholarship where I would spend two years racing, and working towards earning my degree. 

    In 2016 I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos earning bachelors degrees in Exercise and Sports Science and Education. I currently balance my racing hobby with my job as a coach for Boneshaker Project, an Austin based non profit which teaches bicycle fundamentals and safety to local kids and teens.

    I am excited to begin my 10th year of bike racing with the night owls crew. I know 2018 will be a great year of racing bikes with good friends!
