Director of Engineering
Riding Style: Whatever it takes
Bike(s): Mach 6, Phoenix, secret new projects
- Where are you from?
I grew up in near San Francisco, CA, and went to school at Chico State north of there before moving to Utah where I’ve pretty much lived ever since. I now live in Park City.
- Where is your all-time favorite trail or area?
There are so many good trails! One of my favorites, and one of my main test rides is the Porcupine Rim/Whole Enchilada trail system in Moab, UT. It’s always a good time!
- What do you do here anyway?
My business card says I’m the “Director of Intergalactic Engineering and Rotational Experimentation!” which I guess is true. A little more formally, I’m the Director of Engineering. In general, I help with the initial design, create the prototype layout of the bikes, help move things towards production and keep the other designers headed in the right direction. Chris and I have worked together for a long time, something like 15 years now, so I’m pretty good at knowing what he might or might not like.
- How did you wind up at Pivot?
I’ve been with Pivot from the beginning. I worked with Chris before Pivot even existed (at Titus) and wanted to work with him when Pivot was created. We designed the first Pivots from our living rooms.
- If I gave you a bowl of ice cream, what would you put on it?
I think some chocolate, and probably some more chocolate, and then maybe a little more chocolate, maybe some peanut butter. Oh, and let's not forget some whipped Cream.
