Meet our team of dedicated cyclists who work to make the Western New York region accessible to everyone, every way.
As the founder and Executive Director of GObike I have been fortunate to turn a hobby into a job. I love to bicycle—whether it’s for errands, enjoyment, or long excursions to exercise. Only when you’re on two wheels do you get to see the rich diversity of all the people and small intricate details of our buildings and places, which make our city unique.
I’m the head shop mechanic and a Recycle A Bicycle (RAB) instructor. I specialize in teaching kids and adults how to ride a bike. I’ve been working with GObike Buffalo since 2015. I love Buffalo because of the super great people. I love spending time at forest lawn with my bicycle. There’s really hundreds of great places in and around the city.
As the communication director for GObike Buffalo, I tell our story. I'm your go-to person for media inquiries and event posts. From running errands to getting to the park, you can usually find me biking with my dog in tow.
Have you ever wondered if it's okay to ride on the sidewalk or what that weird squeak in your brake is? As Education Director at GObike, I’m here to answer those questions and many more for you. My passion for teaching grew out of my strong desire to help people and strengthen communities. I’ve found that, with a little bit of knowledge and patient instruction, people are able to understand and do things they never thought possible.
Jim is responsible for the engineering of bike infrastructure for GObike's planning initiatives. Recently retired from the Town of Tonawanda where he worked as a licensed civil engineer for 30 years, Jim's tenure included management of many of the town’s planning, engineering, and public works projects totaling in the tens of millions of dollars, including the Tonawanda Rail-to-Trail project.
From SkyRide to Tour de Farms, I make the wheels go ‘round at all GObike Buffalo events. I’ve been passionate about making Buffalo—my hometown—a better place since moving back here in 2010 and love working for GObike Buffalo because I get to do meaningful work to make our communities safer and healthier (and more fun!).
As the Operations and Outreach Director at GObike Buffalo, I connect people and spaces. In creating transportation projects or figuring out the logistics of how we can do things together, the goal is to harness the power of community to build a safer city that makes sense for all road users. The community is a renewable resource providing deep knowledge of how streets should behave so there is infrastructural justice, wherever you are in the City of Buffalo. It’s exciting to work with people all over the city, building new paradigms that will, ultimately, make our city more resilient for coming generations.
Manager of our Community Workshop, I love it when I have time to observe the goings-on at the shop during a really busy day. There are so many people helping each other, learning together, and getting excited about bikes. It’s like a well-oiled machine that pumps out warm fuzzy feelings for everyone.
I serve as GObike's deputy director, a role that blends my fascination with infrastructure, obsession with efficiency, and desire to empower individuals in pursuit of shared values. Cycling has been an endless trove of experiences, leading me to new opportunities, relationships, and perspectives. I'm lucky to work with such a talented team in pursuit of a more mobile and sustainable Buffalo.
I work as both a mechanic at our workshop and as support for our events through our office. I also manage secure bike parking for the BNMC. My favorite part about working for GObike is being directly apart of something highly impactful for our city. I love being able to see first-hand how much of an impact my job has on the cycling community in Buffalo.
