I have commuted by bike since 2002. In 2006, I started a Meetup group for local bike commuters, and have served on the Portland Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine board of directors. I’m currently on the BCM’s Legislative and Policy Committee and Law Enforcement Collaborative. In addition to teaching CyclingSavvy, I teach with BCM’s Bikes for All Mainers adult program, the Maine Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Education program for children, and am a certified councilor for the Boy Scout Cycling merit badge. Professionally, I am a computer programmer, and in my downtime I enjoy listening to and playing music (mostly piano), and reading.
