Age 43
Currently I am a Captain and Lead Check Airman for JetBlue Airways on our E-190. I have been with them for 7 years two of which I flew the Airbus 320. Prior I flew for American Airlines briefly then was laid off during 9-11-01. I was a cargo pilot before that flying around the world in a B-747 for Evergreen Int’l Airlines. I flew in all three seats in the B-747 for close to 14 years ending my career with them as a Captain.
I have Bachelors in Aviation Science and also hold aircraft maintenance credentials (A&P) and a flight engineer rating.
I am married with three children two boys and a girl. 14-11-9 is there ages. I grew up in Dearborn, MI where most of my family still resides. I have been a resident of Orlando for about 18 years.
I came back into the sport of biking because I was starting to feel unhealthy after long hours in the sky. I talked with my brother who has been an avid cyclist for 11 years now and he said start biking again. So I picked up the bike dusted it off and started again as of the end of February 2010. I credit my brother with getting me started in biking again because he gave me his Schwinn Fastback Pro with full Ultegra on it to start hammering out the calories as I have reached the max potential of my 32 lb. mountain bike. I reached over 1400 miles since February of this year 2010, 1100 miles of which were on the Fastback pro and the other 300 miles on the mountain bike. I have lost 40 pounds since then in the past 7 months and feel great. Now I am the proud owner of a new 2011 CR1 PRO full carbon bike from SCOTT and look forward to many miles on it.
I am currently working on ridding three century rides, two of which are in Oct and Nov of 2010. The other will be my first ever charities ride coming in March of 2011. I am looking ultimately to ride the 4 or 6 gaps in North GA in Sept 2011. Ridding with Eastside’s A group from the start has made me push myself harder than I have ever done in years.
Like Eastsides motto says: work harder, get stronger, ride faster

CR1 offers the perfect balance of performance and comfort. Designed to absorb shock and vibration created by irregularities in the road, this concept results in a very smooth and stable ride, reducing rider fatigue and making any ride more enjoyable. The bike’s lateral stiffness enables direct power transfer and ensures both confident cornering and descending. The geometry of the CR1 is performance oriented, but the top tube and head tube lengths offer a more comfortable position than pure racing frames. The seatstays, chainstays and fork all feature SDS, our Shock Damping System. These areas have been specially constructed with regard to tube shape, dimension, and fiber layup to provide vertical compliance without sacrificing torsional stiffness.

Frame: CR1 carbon, HMF-Net fibres
Fork: HMF-Net, carbon steerer
Group set: Shimano Ultegra 6700 Hollowtech
