Born and raised in Reno, I have spent my life exploring and creating memories in the Sierras. When my wife, Theresa, and i had kids, although it changed our type of adventures, it didn’t slow us down. As a family you can find us skiing, biking, backpacking, hiking, climbing, and just enjoying life. My son Dylan will be a sophomore at Galena this year and my daughter Rachel will be a 8th grader at Herz, and both will be riding for the Galena mountain bike team. This will be my third year helping with Galena and first year as a Level 2 coach. I coached high school baseball for several years at Reed and then Wooster, and have always had an amazing time watching the kids grow and develop their skills.
Working with Paul, Ann, the rest of the coaches/parents, and of course the athletes has been exciting and is a great group of people to be around. The life skills and friendships created within the biking community will be treasured by our family for years to come.
