Growing up largely in rural Nova Scotia, bicycles have always been a primary mode of transportation for me. Professional work with bicycles started in 1997 working as an out trip Camping Director, maintaining a fleet of mountain bikes and overseeing 3-day camping trips for YMCA Camp Wapomeo, in Yarmouth County. Since then I have worked in most major repair shops in Halifax, and have co-owned and operated a repair shop in some form since 2010. A bicycle mechanic by trade and a musician by passion, since the mid 90's I have bought, sold, repaired, and played guitars at a semi professional level.

What was your first bike? SuperCycle muscle bike.
Where do you like to ride? In the woods and just about everywhere in between.

My love for bicycles a few decades ago, when I began to cycle commute in the city of Halifax. One thing lead to another and the bike obsession began! After starting work in the industry in 2003 in Halifax, I decided to expand my horizons through cycle touring and working with bicycles in Toronto. I stayed there for another 5 years and then decided to return to Halifax in 2011 to pursue the bicycle shop industry here. Involvement in the cycling community has included hosting repair clinics, group rides, and instructing road safety courses in partnership with the Halifax Cycling Coalition and Ecology Action Centre

What was your first bike? 1980's BMX.
Where do you like to ride? City streets, cross country, and in the dirt!
