I'm originally from Illinois and originally joined this forum in or around 2003. Since then I have disappeared for SEVERAL years, and forgotten my user name and password, as well as the email that I used to set up the account. So... here I am now. I've got roughly 10 years of on and off shop experience as a wrench and salesperson. I've raced road, XC, DH, DS, 4X, and Track.... as well as dirt jumping, riding street, and both street and natural trials, though none of it particularly well. Haha I recently moved from Illinois to the Denver area and have picked up a job at a shop out here as well, at least to get started. I have a degree in Earth Sciences and Environmental Sustainability and hope to find some way to work with the environment while making a positive impact on peoples' lives. Other than that, I love to ski and I love all things cycling.
