I have a passion for cycling. I ride downhill, all-mountain, cross-country, cycle-cross, road, and even beach cruisers. I have raced competitively in multiple categories. I am also a member of a local race team sponsored by the bike shop I am currently employed at. I am married to my high school sweetheart who has been with me for over 10 years. We have one child and purchased our first home in Modesto in 2009. My apprenticeship has given me the understanding necessary to build my own bikes. As a frame fabricator and qualified salesman, I will be a priceless commodity at any bike shop I work at. Seeing as how the position I am applying for requires both of these abilities, I am a perfect fit.
