Based in Portland, Oregon - I am constantly striving to combine my love for cycling, design and grassroots organizing in new ways. I do this by:
~ Full-time user interface designer at Ride with GPS. A website and mobile app for cyclists with tools for route planning, navigation, and finding rides.
~ Board member for Bikepacking Roots. A non-profit that supports the advancement of the bikepacking community and the conservation of landscapes bikepackers ride on.
~ Ambassador for Revelate Designs, Kona Bikes, and Outershell Adventure. Companies that support the bikepacking community and my own trips - most recently a three-month bikepacking trip on the Wild West Route from the Canada border to Mexico border.
~ Writer and contributor to websites such as The Radavist and Bikepacking.com. Media platforms that amplify voices within the cycling and bikepacking community, where I try to intersect my personal bikepacking experience with more significant advocacy issues.
~ Route creator for Bikepacking Roots, Ride with GPS and Bikepacking.com. I combine my past bikepacking experience and knowledge using Ride with GPS to create more accessible bikepacking routes around the Pacific Northwest.
The list continues each year as I try to do the best that I can to combine my passions into meaningful work.
