Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Definitely not – but mountain biking has taught me to navigate the bumpiest of roads 🙂 When I was getting started, I worked three jobs: Personal Training clients, teaching fitness classes and bike messengering on the side. All three jobs were physical. I was moving 24/7. That’s when I earned the nickname “Nonstop”. The past few years I’ve seen my biggest obstacles but also my biggest pay-offs. In 2018 the I was renting in Brooklyn was sold and I had to move again. This time I decided to choose LA for good. What followed was a cross country move, a breakup and one of the BEST cycling seasons of my career, punctuated with my worst injury: A full ACL rupture. Talk about a roller coaster. My career has had many ups and downs but every time I land on my feet and just a bit farther than the last time.
