I'm a simple person that thinks too much. I was born in South Carolina and moved to Alaska in the 3rd Grade.I started racing Mountain Bikes and Road bikes back in 1986. Raced the Iditabike in 1990 and then went to Europe (Belgium) and raced with a 12 man squad for Nike/Velonews. I then moved to Portland Oregon and have been here now almost 15 years.I love the Portland Bike Scene and hope to continue to be a large part of it in the future. I'm currently on the local bicycle team Prestovelo and racing very slowly during the Cyclocross season.
