When did you start at Great Northern Bicycle Company?

March, 2017

Why bikes?

Two wheels is better than four. I love the freedom biking gives you, and the perspective you gain from riding. You get to see the world in a whole new way.

Favorite local bike ride?

MB Johnson and Gooseberry are my go-to mountain bike spots, and I love riding the “New Fun Road.” I also love the WOWDirt rides and the 100 Person Ride!

What are you best known for around the shop?

Being passionate about biking, people, coffee, and donuts.

What was your first bike and what do you remember about it?

A pink 16” Huffy Seastar… I remember feeling like a fast little 4 year old once I got those training wheels off!

Coolest place a bike has taken you?

Oh man, a few summers ago I biked the Beartooth pass and Chief Joseph highway, and last summer I mountain biked in the Black Hills.

Next Adventure?

I really want to do the Dakota Five-O this summer along with bike Beartooth pass again. In the future I would like to do a big bikepacking trip out in the Pacific Northwest.

Favorite kind of pizza?

Anything loaded up with meat and veggies!

Favorite shop tool?

Spoke wrench

Words to live by?
