I grew up in Chattanooga and moved to Knoxville in the Fall of 1988 to attend UT. I was more interested in bike racing than school work so my education¬†took a back seat for several years, finally graduating UT with a B.A. in Psychology. I came to work at The Bike Zoo in February of 1992 and have been here ever since. I am definitely a “roadie” by nature but really enjoy cross country mountain biking and cyclocross as well.

I am currently riding a S-Works Tarmac SL3 with SRAM Red, S-works Tricross with Dura-Ace, S-works Stumpjumper FSR with XTR, Ibis Touche tandem, and a Langster track bike. My free time is spent with my wife Laura and son Luke, and much of that is riding as well.
