Eugene was born in Maryland and raised in the Washington D.C. Metro area. After graduating from The Citadel, Military College of South Carolina, he became “Professor Pak” and taught college-level English right off the Silk Road in Gansu, China. Pedaling became his Zen during his time there. After his stint as a Park Ranger in New Zealand, he cycled from the South Island to North Island and became hooked on bicycle travel. He then transitioned into the outdoor industry as a Wilderness Instructor, leading backpacking trips for students in the Pacific Northwest.
His passion is working with youth, getting them outside in any way possible (preferably on two wheels). He hopes to get as many students addicted to bicycling and the outdoors as possible.
Eugene loves to travel on bike, be outside and somehow squeeze in board games.
