Gained a love for all things cycling when his Uncle Vincent, a Pro-Team Mechanic for U.S. Postal, BMC, Mavic NRS, SRAM NRS & USA Cycling would show up at his grandparents’ house with the team vehicles. Shortly thereafter he followed in his Uncle's footsteps, working as a pro mechanic for various teams such as Optum Pro Cycling (now Rally Pro Cycling), Twenty16, SRAM NRS, & USA Cycling. What was the most important lesson he learned from his Uncle? Slow down, don’t rush, and do it right the first time. Photography and video are his passions, particularly lifestyle portraiture along with creative choreographic dance videos. Fishing is passion # 3. He loves trying new restaurants, and all kinds of food, but Korean is his favorite. He’s still searching for a restaurant in San Francisco that can live up to his Aunt’s home cooking.
