  • By day a Microsoft Platform Web Developer.
  • By night 1/2 the year, a H.S Basketball Coach.

I am a mixed mode commuter - sometimes I ride, sometimes I drive, and sometimes there is a bus or train ride mixed in there.

My rides:

  • 2008 Specialized Roubaix Comp (pretty much stock)
  • 2004 Novara Randonee - racks, fenders, lights and an upgrade to 105 on the rear after a crash.

Started commuting as an adult on a 1993 MtnTek Vertical - rack, fenders, slicks - Sold in 2013.
