I am a 17-year-old (born 1/15/98) going into ninth grade at Ramona High School in Ramona, California. I am also a Boy Scout and experienced backpacker and hiker. My other hobby is building websites for businesses and volunteer organizations. I began riding when I was seven. It did my first LD at age 9 and my first endurance race (a very hard 55 miler where I got 5th place in 10 hours!) at age 11. My Dad has been my sponsor on most of my rides, but I have also done rides with sponsors Kris Heinz, Susan Kontoff, Nicole Kontoff, Phil Worts, and Joan Taylor. Riding has always been natural for me.
