I was born and raised in Warsaw, IN and now reside in Columbia City, IN with my family. I am a father of two boys, and my wife and I have been married since 2003. As I grew up I was involved in numerous sports, and I also had a passion for most things outdoors. I was an avid skateboarder for many years from about 16 through my early 20's. I then became pretty lethargic for quite a few years. I became very unhealthy and overweight. I tried exercise regimens a few different times, and even played soccer for a few years. Nothing ever stuck until I discovered mountain biking. I stumbled across a MTB trail at our local park. I borrowed a friends bike, and the rest is history. I am hooked! If its dirt, I love to ride on it. I kinda like road biking too...I guess.
