Social Profiles


I’ve been racing bicycles since the late 1980’s when I attended Penn State. I moved up through the categories and ended my collegiate career in the A races. Primarily a road racer, I dabbled in MTB, cyclocross and track racing through the 1990’s.

I’ve raced for several successful teams in that time, including Alan’s, Target/ICE, Mercury Pro Cycling, Monex HotWheels, Elite Bicycles and PA Masters. I’ve won numerous races, but more importantly, contributed to many more wins and overall victories in the PA BAR by teammates. Since the inception of the PA BAR, I’ve had a number of successful seasons, placing 3rd overall twice as well as 4th and 5th in other years.

After rediscovering mountain bike racing about 10 years ago, I’ve probably spent more time off-road than I have on. I placed 3rd overall in the Mid Atlantic Super Series (MASS) as a cat 2 to get my current Cat 1 license. My most recent result was a win in the Cat 1 fat bike race at the Fairhill Classic this year (2017).

Due to a variety of injuries and illnesses over the last several years (AKA ‘getting old’), I’ve focused most of my efforts on cyclocross.

Outside of cycling, Laurie and I have been married for 23 years and have 2 English Cocker Spaniels (Lancer and Kayla), 3 horses (Penotti, Deco and Flynn) and 3 barn cats (Sarah, Brandy and Bella).
