What got you into cycling?  

I got into the bike industry kind of peripherally. I worked at Interbike for 8 years and many people who worked on the show were riders so they indoctrinated me. Once I started attending industry events I was hooked. 

What is the one tool you couldn't do your job without?

My trusty binder with part numbers and exploded hub diagrams.

What do you like to do on your days off?

Is this a trick question? Ride bikes of course!

What is your hidden talent?

I make a mean buttermilk roast chicken

What is the best thing after a long ride?

If you could take a bike adventure anywhere in the world where would it be?
