I’m a mountain biker and trail runner who reviews gear, tech and trails, with a touch of East Coast flavor. Being active and surrounded by nature is when I’m happiest.
Based just outside of Philadelphia, most of my biking and running is focused on trail systems in the Tri-State area. I’m pretty rough on my gear, and the terrain I enjoy most is technical, so anything I use must hold up to a pretty high standard.
When I am not riding my bike or running I enjoy hiking with my family and camping in the Catskills mountains. I also enjoy playing pool, basketball and soccer, although I am finding less and less time to do those things these days, lol.
My background is in multimedia and production which helps me create videos on my “TrailSage” channel. If you like what you see please consider subscribing.

If you are interested in learning more about me check out this interview I did with Paul from the DevRunner channel. We covered a variety of topics around mountain biking and trail running, including motivation, accountability and fitness.
Huge “thank you” to Paul @thedevrunner for inviting me to be a part of his Subscriber Spotlight series.
I started mountain biking late in my life and spent my early years on a singlespeed, I even rode fully rigid for a year, lol. While I don’t singlespeed too often these days, it has taught me a lot about how to pick good lines, keeping momentum and how to work through technical features.
These days my mountain biking has evolved and I enjoy pushing my limits on my full suspension bike. I love to climb and my specialty is probably cornering and slow speed tech but I also try to get to a downhill park a few times a year.
My favorite local place is Mt Penn in Reading PA. This place has helped me progress my skills and is filled with challenges I have yet to conquer.
Trail running is my newest passion and much like mountain biking the terrain I love to run on is filled with technical features, rock scrambles and difficult climbs & descents.
My favorite places to run are along the Appalachian Trail from the Lehigh Gap area and up through the Delaware Water Gap. And while I am not a Ultra Runner I do enjoy putting down some big runs from time to time.
