About Me

I'm a 39 yr. old artist and athlete living in NYC (by way of Cleveland, OH). In 2015, I decided to take my love of movement and fitness and make it part of my career. I became a Schwinn Certified Indoor Cycling Instructor and began teaching at MNSTR CYCLE, an edgy boutique indoor cycling studio. MNSTR CYCLE is located in the historic Limelight Church in the Flatiron neighborhood of NYC. My rides are fast, furious & fun - 45 mins of high intensity interval training, challenging for even the most experienced athletes.

If I'm not leading a class at MNSTR, I enjoy strength training, running, road cycling, hiking & mountain biking. By day I work as a Director of Post Production in the photo industry, so movement is essential for my health and sanity. ;)

I've also been an active member of the NYC running community since 2011. I've completed over 10 half-marathons and numerous 10-milers, 10ks and 5ks. I've also run the NYC Marathon twice - in 2013 & again in 2017.

Running was the sport that brought me to NUUN many years ago, fueling my long training runs. Now it fuels every workout I lead and helps me crush my active goals on and off the bike.
