''I shop at FTM because they have all the best brands, understand nutrition and pass that knowledge on to their customers. They give you the tools to get your nutrition right.''

Craig grew up in Southern Easton, MA with 1000 acres of woods behind his house. As a child he went camping, fishing, and hiking. He spent a lot of time in the woods. Building forts, playing war, or just exploring was an everyday occurrence. 

He was never one for team sports. During his junior high and high school years he raced quads. He also found his love for cycling during this time.Though he rode bikes as a kid, it wasn't until he was 17 that he realized how much it meant to him.It was likely the combination of getting a mountain bike and being able to drive that opened his eyes to the possibilities of exploration - in college that love blossomed. At times during his 25 years of cycling Craig has needed time off the bike, and hiking has filled that need. It's great for him to slow down and really get engrossed in nature.To Craig, hiking is simplistic and therapeutic.

His goals in life are to keep exploring, see new places and to stay active. Staying active has kept him young in mind and body - and that is motivation in and of itself. Craig is most passionate about the outdoors and pushing his limits while exploring the world around him.

Craig's newest adventure is ''The One of Seven Project''. Craig's goal is to become the FIRST and ONLY person in history to have completed both the hiking and bikepacking Triple Crowns. He would be One of Seven Billion. The plan is to ride the Tour Divide, then the Colorado Trail, followed up by an ITT of the Arizona Trail.  That will be over 4000 miles (over 11k for the project in total). This will take place in June, July and August of 2017.
