When did you start working at Great Northern Bicycle Company?

February 2019.

What are you best known for around the shop?

Being taller than Larry.

Why Bikes?

Most enjoyable way to get in shape, and a heck of a lot cheaper than an automobile!

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

Some silly red huffy like everyone else. Jousting the neighborhood kids with metal trashcan lids and broom handles.

What is your favorite local bike ride?

Cant go wrong thrashing the trails along the Red River!

What is the coolest place your bike has taken you?

I took my bike to Duluth a few summers ago and rode some of those wild hills which made for a great time!

What is on the horizon?  Describe your next great cycling adventure.

Looking forward to a couple of races this year and hopefully the shop’s Moab trip.

Favorite shop tool?

Pretty lame answer, but the bike stand being as it’s so much nicer than working on the ground at home like I am used to.

What is your favorite kind of pizza?

I’m a simple kinda man, so a simple kinda pizza does the trick: Pepperoni.

Words to live by?

I’ll make it to the moon if I have to crawl!
