Since riding my first brevet in 2003, I've been privileged to complete 59 randonneuring events, including five brevet series, a flèche, the Lone Star 1000K, numerous Permanents, and PBP 2007. I'm proud to have earned the R-5000 Award and two R-12 Awards along the way.

I've been equally privileged to be involved with Randonneurs USA off the saddle. Currently I serve on the club's Executive Committee as Permanents Coordinator. I also work to promote randonneuring in south Texas, where I'm both a Regional Brevet Administrator and a Permanent route owner. I've served, as well, on the Editorial Advisory Board to the American Randonneur. All these activities have allowed me to give back to the sport that I cherish.

It's an honor to be nominated to a position on RUSA's Board. I'd like to receive your vote so that I might further serve randonneuring in the U.S. at the Board level, working in particular to expand RUSA's membership while enhancing the services that we enjoy throughout the year.
