I have been a full-time, professional coach since 2001. During that time I have I have coached athletes ranging from beginners to professionals racing both in the US as well as around the world. I have also conducted numerous coaching consultations for athletes and teams, and am currently the Performance Manager for the Bear Development Team.

I became a USA Cycling Level I Certified Power Based Training Coach in 2007. In my quest for continuing my education and expertise I joined the Superhuman coaching group in January of 2013, as well as completing Crossfit Endurance and Mobility certifications and becoming a certified coach in the Training Peaks referral program.

Having worked as West Coast Mountain Bike Development Camp Manager in 2007 – 2008, and working as the Performance Manager for the Bear Development Team from 2012 I have extensive knowledge in developing athletes both young and old. My current clients range from 15 to 83 years old.

Athlete achievements:
Elite TT National Championships
Mountain Bike National Champion
USA Cycling National Team Selection
Sub 10 Hour Ironman Finisher
Age Group Podium Finish at Vineman Ironman
State Road and Criterium Championship

Road National Podium Finishes
Completion of RAAM (2nd team competition)
Team Coaching to State Championship Title
Podium Finish at TransRockies

In addition to my own coaching, I have also mentored several coaches and helped with their educational process in learning all aspects of coaching including the analysis of power data.

Prior to coaching, I competed in all disciplines of cycling and raced Mountain Bikes Professionally for over 15 years. In that time I achieved several state championships, had been ranked #1 nationally, and finished 3rd at the NORBA National Championships in Mammoth California. I am currently “semi-retired” from racing but still love to ride and train when I have the time. You may even see me at a local road, cross, or mountain bike race in the future.
