I had no idea that I'd fall so far in love with bikes, and electric assist systems for them. It just happend and there was nothing I could do about it. Beggining the first time I saw an EcoSpeed system on a tadpole trike, I began volunteering with them, and with some local non-profit community bike shops. After some time doing that I found myself in the industry, working part time at EcoSpeed, and at Coventry Cycleworks. As time progressed my skills did as well, and as EcoSpeed developed I transitioned in full time to put my shoulder to the wheel. I have been very lucky to grow along with the company, and it was in this interest that I started attending business courses at Marylhurst University. I aim to grow and offer relevant contribution as EcoSpeed grows and needs them. My wish is no less than to fuel a transportation revolution through the electric bicycle.
I am interested in sales, marketing, production, management, product development, industry relations, and OEM sales.

Persuing a degree in Human Studies has been a gift that I never expected. It has given me an understanding of the relationships we have with ourselves, each other, the world, and even to some degree, the transcendent. Coupling this exploration with a Certificate in Business Management has brought the soft skills of Human Studies into relationship with the hard skills of business, providing a unique perspective to contribute within the company.

Community College is an extreamly viable start into education, and my experiances at Mount Hood helped me galvanize a life direction that I am very proud of.
