After having retired from one career, I now work for Perimeter Bicycling Association of America, Inc. as the Event Director for El Tour de Mesa. PBAA produces El Tour de Tucson, El Tour de Mesa, and the Cochise Cycling Classic. I am a member of PBAA and Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club. I have been riding for 39 years and have logged over 400,000 miles on a bicycle saddle. Arizona is a great place to ride because we do not get much snow in the Valley of the Sun. A little warm in the summer, but the other 9 months make up for it. My wife Kris also rides and we share our Cannondale tandem for a few thousand miles each year. In 2014 I had a run in with a wasp that flew down my throat and stung me. It put me in ICU in an induced coma for several days as I fought anaphalactic shock. Caused a lot of side effects but finally was able to get back on the bike. Then in July 2015 I found out I had Stage 3 melanoma skin cancers. 4 months and several surgeries later I am doing well again, but ever vigilant about too much sun. Long live sun block!! Thanks to my cancer surgeon and other doctors for getting me back up and cycling. I am now fighting the cancer as it has gone systemic....inside of me. I am currently receiving immunotherapy and I am at the point where the accumulative effects of the drugs are having serious side effects. However, I am doing OK right now and I can still ride. Thank you God!!
