Silver Back and Long Term Planning... or Co-Founder and CFO?
"My most important task is keeping Wild Rock on the rails in terms of strategy and direction. Day to day you can find me helping customers with bikes and skis. Some special areas I have experience in are cycling trip logistics, bike fitting, training and nutrition. I think my most critical skill is outside the box thinking and knowing when to holdem' and when to fold em' risk assessments."
Favourite Music: Rage Against the Machine, The Offspring, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Van Morrison and Earth Wind and Fire.
Favourite Hobby Outside Work: Rolling on two wheels. Road cycling on Thursday night PCC rides, mountain biking with family and friends, racing cyclocross or riding my Beta in enduros.
"I am so fortunate to be part of two families; I have 2 kids Jens and Clara and my wife is Kathy Eggenberger. My household family keeps me young as we play and race on wheels, on foot and skis. When not in motion we can be found at the cottage or playing cards at home in the evening. My second family is the Wild Rock crew; this gang has my back when times are tough, push me to do things better, expand my comprehension of what is possible day to day. Our staff have so many incredible back stories they could make an epic mini series.
Things that might not be obvious about me is I am financial nerd and would love to chat with you about economics. I believe strongly in helping those who have not been afforded the good luck and DNA that I have enjoyed. I am currently focusing on homelessness, addiction and mental health in the Peterborough area. I can be found on many mornings leading our staff in yoga and core exercises before we get the day going. It helps keep our crew healthy in body and spirit."
I Generally Manage & Co-Own
"If I had to sum it up, I do my best to take care of people.

I know a little about most things here at Wild Rock and support those who know a lot. "

Favourite Hobby Outside Work: Rock Climbing!
"Growing up, I wanted to be a teacher until I realized that I don't enjoy managing large groups of kids...and so I ended up working at Wild Rock "while I figured out" what to do with my life! Now I'm here working alongside a crew of people that I genuinely admire, learn from, and laugh with every day. I get to meet interesting, adventurous people, and I have a vibrant, active community around me. Most people transition into a 'lifestyle job' later in life - I had the privilege of landing in one accidentally!"
