This is a personal project that is still "in the works". I'm once again developing a Wordpress theme from scratch here and learning all sorts of neat tricks along the way. The main focus of this project is to have a common place where local cyclists and out of towners can come to share, download and discover some of the best riding in the Asheville area.

So what about me, eh?



Well, I'm never one to spill everything on the first date, so we'll just pick through the trimmings here. I work for a little software company and help build websites for clients. I absolutely love what I do and I believe it shows in my work. I live in the one of the best cities in the country, Asheville, NC. I work from home, get to hang out with my dog all day, cruise the local singletrack and just try to enjoy life as we know it. It's that simple. Do what you love, everything else is details.


Prior to working in the IT field, I was employed in the cycling industry for close to 6 years. I worked for a large distributor of cycling components, at a bike shop and as a part time mechanic during that time. I graduated with a BA from UNC Charlotte and went back to school a short time later to earn a BS in IT with a focus in web multimedia and animation.
