From October 2019 to March 2020 I was solo-cycling through the Americas; from the Bronx Zoo in NYC towards Karukinka Natural Park at southern tip of South America. After 7,000 miles of cycling, I made it to Chile, but was forced to evacuate due to the Coronavirus
Why spend 5 months cycling through the Americas?
I've dedicated the past ten years to studying urban ecology and connecting people to nature in NYC to contribute to a more equitable and environmentally sustainable future. I took a leave of absence from WCS to step outside of the familiar, challenge myself mentally and physically, and see first-hand the changing Human Footprint at a continental scale.
Coaching and Advising
Since returning from South America, I've become a USAC certified cycling coach and now help others realize their own goals; however small or large they may be.
