First set of wheels, 1985

I consider myself extremely fortunate to live in an area as important to the history and culture of cycling as Northern California. The Olympic sport of mountain biking was invented just to the north and the list of influential innovators, athletes, and personalities that call the bay area home is long and storied. To be involved in the culture of American cycling, I could not have chosen a better place to live. As a kid in Southwestern Montana, I grew up dreaming of the places I could take my bicycle, and where the sport of cycling could take me. Over the years, my appreciation for cycling grew and I became more and more fascinated with the photography generated by every iteration of the sport.

"I grew up dreaming of the places I could take my bicycle, and where the sport of cycling could take me."

Cycling runs the gamut from the largest sporting events in the world, to solitary feats of willpower and self discovery. By involving myself as a photographer, I can preserve and share every moment from the serene to the tragic. I am a huge believer in the good that cycling can do in the world. A bicycle can promote commerce, provide dependable transportation, and raise awareness, all while benefiting the health of the rider and the environment. Basically, I can't say enough good things about the world of cycling and I hope to be a part of the positive impact it has on the rest of humanity.
