Having spent my formative years in Europe, the US has been my home for most of my adult life. While Santa Cruz is my spiritual home, my heart has always been drawn to the mountains. Now based in Colorado, I continue to embrace travel and adventure, readily embarking on journeys. Whenever possible, I make a pilgrimage to the desert southwest, particularly Moab, UT.
Being outdoors brings me immense joy, and few activities compare to the exhilaration of mountain biking. Completing the trifecta of happiness is camping with family and friends. In my free time I dedicate myself to volunteering on non-profit boards, contributing to the construction of mountain bike trails, using my bike mechanic skills to assist a wide circle of friends, and surrounding myself with like-minded individuals who share my passions.
