Hometown San Geronimo, CA
Sir Francis Drake High School graduate
Eagle Scout, Troop 59, Greenbrae, CA
UC Davis graduate with a BA in Exercise Biology
Professional cyclist  since 2014

I started racing mountain bikes in high school, then found Team Swift and began racing mostly on the road.  I soon found success on the road with Team Swift, winning the climbers jersey at the San Dimas Stage race, Wente Road Race, Mt Hamilton Road Race, and San Rafael Twilight. After graduating from Team Swift, I studied Exercise Biology at UC Davis while racing for the California Giant development team. I found success at both the national and local level, winning races such as Cherry Pie, Cal Aggie, and stage 3 of the Mt Hood Cycling Classic. While racing for UC Davis, I won the Criterium and Road race at the NCC District Championships, while at the national level I finished 2nd in the individual omnium at the Collegiate Cycling National Championships. I also finished 4th in the road race and 2nd in the criterium at U23 National Championships. With these successes I earned a spot on the USA U23 National team, where I raced in the Netherlands, France, Belgium and Germany.  After graduating I turned pro with the 5-Hour Energy Racing Team, which took me to races across the country and world. I currently Race for the IRT Professional Racing Team while living and training in Santa Rosa. Making the transition from local junior rider to professional racer has let me with a wealth of knowledge and experience.  Just like so many former Team Swift riders did for me, I look forward to helping young riders pursue and reach their sporting goals.
