Special Projects and International Operations
Riding Style: Was really into road for years but getting stoked on getting back to the dirt (or dust as it seems to be down here)!
Bike(s): Constantly changing and trying to determine what Pivot I am going to end up with right now!

  1. Where are you from?

    Campbell River, BC (lived in Vancouver for 20 years)

  2. Where is your all-time favorite trail or area?

    There have been so many over the years (all of the early Single Speed World’s), but riding down in South Africa at the Cape Epic was amazing!

  3. What do you do here anyway?

    Working on the expansion of our international business on the back end and our ability to get more bikes to more countries so that more people can ride a Pivot!

  4. How did you wind up at Pivot?

    20+ years in the industry, including starting my own brand, moving to Portland from Vancouver, running the US division of a UK company and then moving my family to the UK for two years . . . it’s a long story but has given me some great international experience!

  5. If I gave you a bowl of ice cream, what would you put on it?

    It would end up with bananas, strawberries and pineapple . . . some whip cream and a cherry on top. My 4 year old daughter Grace would then get first crack at it and I would end up with the scraps!
