I strive to finish each day a little more badass than I started it.

I was told my entire life that I couldn't be an athlete (and very much believed it). Three years ago I signed up for a triathlon. I couldn't swim or run. I was 100% sure I'd fail... but I didn't. And that finish line became the start line of a new adventure: erasing every single item from my "I can't do that" list.

Fun and adventure is what I live for. I'm heavily involved in dog sports, and my pups Kepler and Zelda are a big part of my world. I live for triathlon, for gravel biking, for photography, for sunrises, for adventures get me outdoors and allow me to meet new people. When I'm not working, you'll often find me (and the doggos) on the 100+ miles of gravel trails I get to call home - biking, skiing, running, joring, and generally enjoying the heck out of life.

This year, I also found myself with a career in the world of sport, and now I'm one of the lucky few for whom work and play is the same.

As someone that eats gluten free and has an opinionated stomach, I've become a huge fan of Picky Bars - whether or not I'm selected, know that you'll have a loyal customer for life.
