Bio:

I was a real lucky kid, raised by the best-dad-ever just north of Chicago in the kinda town where everyone gets a shiny new car for their 16th birthday. I was into it at first, but became increasingly concerned with the environment and ended up being one of, I dunno, maybe three seniors lockin’ up at the high school bike rack. When I got my first courier job in ‘07, I didn’t even know what a courier was. I met a girl who said she could get me work riding my bike, my mind was totally blown that it was actually a real thing. I enjoyed the new job so much, I was like, “YOLO” and I dropped outta art school to do it full time. Sixish months later I YOLO’d again and did a real dumb Pacific Coast cycling tour on my track bike, no panniers, no bike shoes, no chamois, no helmet, no garmin, (no masters). I came home and won my first alleycat. Time flies when you’re YOLOing, and eight years later I’m still makin’ all my money riding my bike in the Midwest, and still spending every penny of it to go ride and race bikes everywhere else.
