I never grew up on dirt bikes or anything like that, but when I was in 3rd grade, one of my friends introduced me to the world of mountain biking. And boy, did I fall in love! From a young age to a fully grown mid-20-year-old, I've been riding bikes in almost every capacity - BMX, mountain bikes, road bikes, you name it. I even dabbled in unicycling for a bit (not recommended, unless you're a glutton for punishment and enjoy getting razzed by your buddies).
But my real passion was always racing, I loved the competition. I started racing in high school and a little bit afterward in a number of different disciplines. I was super grateful to have the opportunity to travel to some really rad places with some of my closest friends, but after years of competing and traveling with my trusty two-wheeled steed, I decided to hang up the race plate. I knew I still wanted to be in the bike world and be around like-minded people who share my passion, but wasn’t too sure how to achieve that. Plus, my mom said I needed to get a real job.
So I started working in retail at a few different bike shops while going to college. I worked my way up to a manager position, but I soon realized that wasn't enough for me. I wanted more than anything to work remotely, so I could bike all day and still get paid (don’t tell Josh). That's when I discovered email marketing. I mean, what could be more exciting than creating emails about bikes? (Don't answer that - but no, seriously, I love it) I worked at a few different marketing agencies and gained experience over the years, but deep down, I always wanted to write emails about things I was passionate about and products I used myself.
I want to give ya'll the best experience and provide as much value as possible with our emails. I enjoy getting people out of the house and out riding, and my hope is that my emails do just that for you. So there you have it, folks - a boy, a bike, and a dream come true 🙂 Cheers!
