+ What inspired you to start bike riding/racing?
Commuting by bike was my gateway. Commuting lead to alleycats, which lead to sanctioned racing.
+ What inspires you every day to get on your bike?
Coffee and the outdoors.
+ What does inspire to achieve mean to you now?
Visualize and hope and strive for something better, fight complacency and inertia, believe.
+ How do you use data for your training and racing?
It can be very useful to have something objective to compare to when you are unsure about how a day went on the bike. It is helpful to be able to hold yourself accountable during an interval with a power number.
+ What does technology bring into bike racing?
Technology gives riders the tools to gather the data they need to be able to train intelligently. It makes those tools portable, effortless to use, and affordable.
+ Did you like math and science in school?
I enjoyed the hands-on aspects, especially once I got to college. Science and math are everywhere, I enjoy learning things that bring depth to everyday experiences.
+ If you have a college degree, (or currently in the process) what is it in?
BFA in Furniture at California College of the Arts.
+ If you could do one thing with AI (artificial intelligence) besides fight malware, what would it be?
Approach the singularity with caution, slowly, patiently, and with high regard for the delicate qualities that make humans special.
+ What is your super power?
I am a dog.
