I bought my first heart rate monitor in high school. Going on runs and watching my HR blink on my wrist blew my mind. Shortly after finishing college, I snagged my first GPS cycling computer; a power meter came next.

BPM, RPM, and watts all beamed to a tiny computer on my handlebars. Sure, I could use these numbers to improve how I trained, but most of all, riding with data was fun.

During my graduate program, I fell in love with school for the first time in my life. Data was a bridge between my experience on the bike and the world of exercise science I encountered in the lab.

When I started Data Driven Athlete in 2010, I felt like a part-time evangelist proselytizing the gospel of data. Today, data is everywhere: phones, watches, rings, glucose monitors.

There’s no limit to what technology can mine from our lives and yet there comes a time when the cost to “quantify yourself” becomes too high; I think we’re living in that time.

We want technology to improve our health and performance on the bike, but we’re so distracted and overwhelmed by information we don’t even know where to start.

My role as your coach is to cut through the noise by offering personal and thoughtful cycling coaching to help you focus on riding better than ever.
