About Me

Biomedical Engineer
Cycling, kayaking, history

Riding in the French Alps is something I've wanted to do for quite a while so I'm looking forward to turning the crank on some classic climbs.

During the day I'm the director of a product development group for a medical device company.  We design and manufacture spinal implants for treatment of various spinal conditions.

But after work I enjoy cycling the backroads of the wonderful state of Virginia. Some of my favorite places to ride locally are Skyline Drive, and just about anywhere in the Shenandoah Valley.  I've cycled in Spain and Italy, and have been cycling in Canada several times. I do the Bike Virginia tour almost every year and so have been to many uncelebrated, but beautiful areas.

I believe there's no better way to see the country than from the saddle of a bicycle.
