Oregon Market Shop Coordinator at REI
J is a 13 year bike mechanic veteran and a proud member of the women’s cycling team Team Nonstop. J’s also involved with the Portland chapter of the WTF Bike Explorer community that does weekly, inclusive and adventure-focused rides.
J is excited to be on the jury to get a first-hand look at how others choose to depict our shared passion for bikes and says it is an honor to have a voice in the process. “Every film portrays a different relationship between artist/cyclist and their individual story, and I am excited to both relate and have my worldview expanded.”
As a juror, J hopes to see more films created by women, people of color, and groups not typically represented in cycling culture, as well as films about the intersection of community and bikes/adventure.
Favorite post-ride or movie watching snack: Sugary vegan treats.
“I love Filmed by Bike’s diversity in films and the ability to get a glimpse into other people’s worlds of adventure. Every year after Filmed by Bike I feel a rejuvenation and spark of motivation for my next expedition.”
