Hometown? Waseca, MN – now Crested Butte, CO

Favorite thing about Fatback(the brand)? It is made up of a great group of people who are on the cutting edge of fatbike design and passionate about the culture. When I ride the bike, I am proud to represent the brand and the people behind it.

Why fatbikes? I live in winter for 8 months of the year, with snow covering the ground. As someone who loves riding year-round it makes sense for me. I also am an avid backcountry skier and ski mountaineer, and a big advocate for human powered travel. While there are many places to ski in Crested Butte that are most easily accessed via snowmobile, I can do it on my Corvus!

Favorite fatbike slogan(or make your own!)? Does my ass makes this bike look fat?

What is something weird that makes you happy? Worms. I love when it rains and they all come out and wriggle around.

If you were a dessert, what would you be? Rain Cake. I’ve always thought the smell of rain would probably taste really good as a cake. (This doesn’t yet exist, but maybe someday it will!)
