“Is easy going, knowledgeable and fun. He is a good guacamole maker.”
Home Town: South Bend, IN -- currently in Durango, CO
Years as a Guide: 10
Favorite Western Spirit Trip: We have a lot of great ones but seeing as how I've spent the last 7 seasons out there, I've gotta say the Umpqua. Even riding that trail for weeks on end-- it just never gets old. And the dirt is some of the finest in the country.
Most fun you have had on 2 wheels: Any time we get the entire staff together for a multi-day Ballyhoo session is always some of the best times a guy/gal can have on a bike.
Favorite Dutch oven recipe: Roasted spuds
Who would play you in a movie of your life?: Chuck Norris
Favorite guest quote: While in the middle of NOWHERE on many trips, "do we have to worry about someone stealing the bikes at night?".
What is your claim to fame: I guess it depends on whom you ask. But I was a pretty bitchin Chuck Norris one year for Halloween.
What do you do when not riding: I ski powder. Daily.
