Store Manager - Westwood
Bicycles have always fascinated me. They've transformed from unbelievable gifts from Santa, into a lifestyle. Those early days struggling and always trying to keep up with my eldest brother in the hills of Ojai, Ca have forever shaped me. My roots will always be in mountain biking, and I've enjoy most everything on two wheels. Pedal power or internal combustion, they are vessels for adventure and friendships. I've worked with bikes since my college years and have always enjoyed working hands on. I've arrived at Helen's via The Trek Store of Ventura where I held the Service Manager position for several years. I'm excited to share and experience the rich history Helen's Cycles has provided for good people and their bikes. It will be another memorable ride.

As there were always bikes in my households, they've always been a part of my life. My father used to work for Helen's as a mechanic, so I spent my time after school with him at work. Without knowing it, bikes slowly became a big part of my life. My development as a mechanic was natural... since I was good at breaking bikes as a kid, I became good at fixing them as well.
