Marissa got into cycling as a commuter living in San Francisco, then got really into cycling when she realized that it could not only take her places, but also show her places. Marissa was an avid runner, but after a few injuries she needed a new outlet. She spent four years guiding bike tours in Italy, California, Hawaii, and Wyoming, then settled in Los Angeles to work Event Operations at Red Bull. She enjoys getting out and guiding to meet new people, and in her spare time she enjoys surfing, cycling (obviously), and spending time outdoors. Marissa loves shared experiences, especially centered around food and wine.
