Hello! I like to bike, and write stuff. I like to go to music shows and play all sorts of games. I like to drink coffee and beer, sometimes at the same time, usually not. I like to volunteer in the community, I volunteer at Key City Bike (a non-profit bike kitchen, so to speak) and occasionally over at the 410 Project (a non-profit art gallery), because I love art in all its forms. I love to sing and do karaoke, and I'll play my flute occasionally. I like to play bike polo over at the court by Mankato West. I love to have fun and meet new people and be exposed to new situations. I'm a big fan of adventures!
What I’m doing with my life
Just taking it one day at a time like everybody else. Working in New Ulm at a chiropractic clinic, and playing on my bikes in Mankato. Riding singles, working doubles, drinking triples. When I'm not on my bike I like to write short stories and poetry, I find that I really need a creative outlet!
In August I'm going to the UBI (United Bicycle Institute) to take bike repair and maintenance classes and get certified as a real bonefied Bike Wrench and I'm very excited about it!
I’m really good at
Sometimes I can write
Haikus and other poems
They are fun to do
I'm good with computers, though I really see them more like a means to an end.
I'm a fast biker, I'm on the Nicollet Bike Team and I usually go on the Tuesday night road rides with them.

On a typical Friday night I am
Out in Mankato at a show or hanging out at a friends place.
