Where did you grow up?
Born and raised in Stillwater, Minnesota on the banks of the St. Croix River. Famous for Beer Can Island, Fulton Reed from The Mighty Ducks, and Grumpy Old Men.
What are your interests/hobbies?
Trail running, single-speeds, Ultimate Frisbee, and camping. When it comes to music all you need is DMB (only person in the history of Surly to write that).
Who do you think you are, anyway?
I’m a combination of relentless positivity and sick dance moves, you can call me Young Christopher Walken.
Give me your top ten factoids about yourself that others may not realize.
Who or what influences your behavior and why?
My parents who taught me the value of hard work, education, and never once said, “That’s stupid” when I told them what I wanted to be. Scott Jurek and Anton Krupicka for inspiring me to seek adventure every day in life and push beyond what I think I can do.
What would you say your job is around here?
I work with the most innovative people in the bike industry to bring our projects from crazy 2:00am fever dreams into the real world. They supply the imagination, I bring the OCD.
One sentence to say what you want to. Go.
I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams.
