I am originally from Mexico City, but was raised in a town named Dacula, 40 miles outside of Atlanta, Georgia. I remember flying in from Mexico to land at the Hartsfield-Jackson airport and looking outside the window and noticing the entire land beneath me was covered in trees. This image differed from what I remembered about life in Mexico City, as it was polluted and everywhere you turned you would see cement or brick buildings with the exception of the Volcano Popocatépetl. Moving away from the concrete jungle sparked an adventurous curiosity within me, and as I grew up if I was not playing video games or painting in my room while listening to music, I was gardening, hiking, running long distances, cycling, long boarding, or simply just exploring outside.
Like most passionate people, I want to expand my knowledge in anything related to cycling and the bike industry. For me, a bike is not a toy and it is not a tool, although they can provide fun and utility. A bike to me is an extension of myself and capabilities; what you put into your bike comes right out. It seemed to me that Seven and the crew share the same idea as far as getting a result equivalent to the sum of its original parts. Everyone here is incredibly talented and there is so much to speak about regarding the passion coming from the founders. I wanted to work with passionate leaders, learn from experienced and innovative creatives, and share good times with people who love bikes and biking just as much as I do.
Every time I am on the saddle is the best experience for me. I do not have anxiety when I am on my bike… even when I am on a race starting line. I wake up thinking of riding, day dream of riding, and fall asleep thinking of riding. (Come to think of it, one time I was in line at a grocery store with my bike next to me and a person told me they thought my bike was a beautiful piece of machinery. That almost made me cry.)
