Cycling was and still is a passion!
It started with mountain biking in the Edmonton river valley with my Dad at age six. At age twelve, I was introduced to the velodrome, road racing and mountain bike racing through Juventus Cycling Club’s LAMP program. (LAMP is named after Canada’s 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist track sprinter Lori-Ann Muenzer.) Then there was cyclocross during the Cadet and Junior years: hopping barriers, riding in snow and those off camber turns! But my true calling was track sprinting. Above is a picture of me at the Gold Coast 2018 XXI Commonwealth Games during a Flying 200. My dream and intention was to compete as a Track Cyclist in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and beyond!
Road to Photography
While competing in the Keirin at the 2018 Elite Pan American Track Championships, in Aguascalientes, Mexico, on August 30, 2018, I crashed and sustained a serious head injury. Photography, which was a hobby prior to the accident, has become a big part of the healing journey and a new career I am exploring. Check out photos here.
