Describe thyself

I was born in Port Said, Egypt, where I was raised for 13 years before moving here to Minnesota. I have been playing soccer since I could walk and kick a ball, I rode my first bicycle when I was 2 years old. In my free time, I play the bass, the guitar, and DJ on electronic turntables. Ironically, I'm more of a car person than a bike person. I own a 94 honda civic project car, I drive a sporty Mazda 3 right now, and my dream car is a 1968-69 Dodge Charger R/T.

OOFDA that's tough. I ride all disciplines of cycling and I believe that all bikes are super rad. It's hard to narrow it down to just one dream bike. I'll just take them all please! 

What do you like about working at the racery?

sought out The Racery because the people I get to help out are looking for state of the art bikes! I get the honor of helping them down the path to an amazing bike. To me theres not a better feeling then that. Getting someone so excited to get out and ride their dream bike. The folks here at The Racery are a group of rad individuals and it makes it a very awesome place to be. 

Describe thyself

Well ever since I was a young kid I was always into bmx and knew how to get rad!( no, but for real)  Bikes have always been a passion of mine and I will forever love being around them. I've been working in the bicycle industry for nearly a decade and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon! outside of bikes, some other hobbies or passions of mine would include photography and finding any trails along the way to ride. I do a lot of urban exploring or chasing sunsets. I prefer to ride a mountain bike around simply because you can get rad at anytime! I fell in love with Volvos in the past year and own a 1995 850 wagon. it's been another hobby of mine to fix old things and make them work as best as possible too!
