Occupation: Professor, researcher, husband, father
Hobbies: inventor, ask about my chickensYears racing: forever
Racing Achievements: Started racing at the beginning of Adventure Racing, back when the maps were off scale and hand drawn, headlights would give you about 2 hours of dim light before you had to change batteries, and steel was the favorite material for mountain bikes. Since then have done hundreds of races and even won a few – still love it all these years later and am always looking forward to the next challenge. Glad about one thing, roller blading in adventure races did not catch on!
