Prior to working with nrbi, I spent 20 years at TD Bank, the last six in retail operations. Last spring, I made the decision to leave the corporate world and find a way into the cycling industry as a second career. I pursued a few different ideas before coming across the work being already being done by my current partners with nrbi, Ivan Waissbluth and Nick Gaganarias. I initially joined nrbi as a part-time cargo bike rider before moving into an ownership position.
Aside from my work with nrbi, I run numerous cycling-related social media accounts that focus on advocacy and urban cycling. While my love of cycling originates from what I would call "Dutch style urban cycling" and cargo bikes, I purchased my first drop bar bike last winter and quickly fell in love with gravel and road cycling. I am also a loyal volunteer for The Bike Brigade
