I got into cycling because of a need to improve my fitness and lose some weight. I knew that in order for me to stick with something and really make fitness improvements, it had to be something I would enjoy and as a kid, I always enjoyed riding my bike. Now, I'm finding a new passion for the hobby and sport. I'm obsessed. I've lost 70+ pounds and I feel better than I can remember in a long time. In 2016, I became a Pactimo Brand Ambassador and have represented that company proudly ever since, accomplishing a number of competitive goals including the following.

2019 NJ 40+ TT State Champion
2018 NJ 35+ TT State Champion
2018 NJ TT Cup Cat 1/2/3 Cup Champion
2017 NJ TT Cup Eddy Cat 4/5 Cup Champion

Throughout, all of those accomplishments, I've used Stages Power meters on my bikes and I would be thrilled to represent the Stages brand next year throughout the NJ TT Cup events and local crit races including the Tour of Somerville.
