Talk about a dream job. I am fresh out of college and one of RevZilla’s youngest employees. Although I have not been riding for decades, I am incredibly passionate about riding (responsibly) and working with other connoisseurs.
I would not consider myself a die-hard commuter, but as long as it is not raining in the morning, you can bet that I’ll be riding in on two wheels. As fun as it is to ride 10 miles on I-76 each day into Philly, my true enjoyment is exploring twisty roads, getting lost, and putting my bike through its paces.
Unfortunately, I was a victim of a mid-turn lowside due to gravel about a year and a half ago. Thankfully (and no, this is not a sales pitch), I was properly geared up and was perfectly OK to ride for the rest of the day. That unintentional dismount showed me the importance of wearing the proper gear and truly put meaning behind the saying, “I would rather sweat than bleed."
Besides riding, I love playing soccer on the weekends. I played from my early childhood through college and miss being able to play every day. I’m currently active in a men’s (beer) league but certainly miss the level of competition from before.
Favorite thing about RevZilla: Being a motorcycle nut, working with motorcycle nuts, for motorcycle nuts. Even though we all ride different bikes and would not be caught dead on a sportbike, Harley, dirt bike, Goldwing, etc, we all have one thing in common — we ride. Working at RevZilla has not only given me an appreciation for all types of bikes, but has made me understand that although we have different riding interests, we have one huge thing in common that brings us all together.
