FB4K MN Staff

 

– Executive Director FB4K MN

 

 

 

 

David Zeller – Volunteer Coordinator

David Zeller was hired as the Volunteer Coordinator for the 2022 season. He has loads of experience in the non-profit world working with volunteers. In a previous life, he was a bat boy for the Saint Paul Saints!

When not motivating volunteers you can find David chasing two toddlers around, hopefully at a soccer match, at the soccer bar, but, more than likely at Daddington Manor — the kids can go really fast on those damn Strider Bikes. 

 

 

Chris Torres – Warehouse Coordinator

Chris is the Warehouse Coordinator for Free Bikes 4 Kidz MN. He’s also a board member at Minneapolis Climate Action and pursuing his Masters in Advocacy and Political Leadership (MAPL) at Metro State. If you haven’t seen him in a while, he’s probably knee-deep in the boneyard looking for that one part. He’ll know it when he sees it.

 

 

Kirk Dann – Bike Recipient Coordinator

Kirk Dann was hired as the Bike Recipient Coordinator in 2022 and is excited to use his professional project experience in his first Free Bikes 4 Kidz MN bike collection, clean-up, and bike giveaways. Kirk got into biking by watching bike racing at velodromes in Northbrook, IL, and Blaine, MN, and by taking road trips from St. Paul, MN to LaCrosse, WI, and back. Committed to helping the community, Kirk is a cycling volunteer for adaptive cycling programs and an adaptive ski instructor in the Twin Cities and was born into a family dedicated to non-profit development and fundraising.

 

 

 

Tonya Skorich – Communications Coordinator

Born and raised in Minneapolis Tonya has an eclectic background in the arts,  non profits, social justice, and work with at-risk youth.  She lives with way too many dogs and her cool teen daughter.  

Tonya believes in youth empowerment and is excited to join FB4K MN in providing access to freedom and fun through bikes, regardless of social or economic barriers. She especially inspired by all of the amazing volunteers who make all of this possible!

 

 

Audrey Sheffield – Host and Guide

Audrey started as a volunteer for FB4K in 2013, and after 3 days of retirement in 2021, joined the FB4K MN team as a host and guide. She enjoys getting her hands dirty on a bike and teaching basic repair skills to volunteers. When not working with volunteers, she can be found outdoor adventuring in all weather. 


 

FB4K MN Board of Directors

Retired financial services executive, Jeff Lundgren has returned from 9 years in London to get Free Bikes 4 Kidz MN finances cranking. Cheers! He’s clearly a roadie, ready to cruise on his Cannondale Synapse, Focus Mares and Pashey Countryman.

 

 

 

 

Matthew Kennedy – Treasurer

Former bean counter before becoming a client spokesman for HairClub for Men. When not modeling and putting miles on my Wilier, I play an amazing #2 parent with an even more amazing wife to Monroe and Maris.

Fred has been described as “really a pretty good guy,” and enjoys spending time with his five bikes ages 7, 5, 3, 1 and 6 months.

 

 

 

 

IMG_2041David Rulifson

David started delivering papers at age nine on a Sears bike with baskets, and now commuting on bike to and from work provides plenty of inspiration. He can’t decide between his Cannondale, Seven, Felt and 2 Times.

A commercial real estate broker who once rocked Coachella and made money as a Jerry Seinfeld look-a-like, strives to convince his kids he is still cool. Dan rules the road on his Specialized Tarmac and Salsa Beargrease fatty.

 

 

 

IMG_2362.jpgMaureen Vischer – Vice Chair

Kids specialist Maureen’s philosophy is to keep the action in front of you, watch out for people trying to take out your knees, and celebrate like crazy when something good happens. She wheels a less­-than-­agile Honda Pilot.

 

 

 

Britt Monson

Marketing and branding by day, downhill skiing in the winter by night and weekends – spending time with her family/friends/dog OUTSIDE every chance she gets. Born and bred a MN girl, she calls Savage home but always counting the days to get on skis or hit a trail in MT (where her sister/daughter live).

 

 

 

 

Eric Nelson

A proud husband of over 30 years, father to three lovely daughters, musician, and a passion for cycling. When not nurturing those parts of his life, he is a CPA with over 25 years of experience in public accounting. His favorite quote is “Hope for the best and let God take care of the rest!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Joan Weber

With a long career as an painter and illustrator, Joan has unleashed her creative powers to make Free Bikes 4 Kidz MN look good and feel good in the world of social media. Her wheels are always turning.

 

 

 

 

Adam Clarke

Experienced IT leader and longtime lover of bikes. In 7th grade he rode to school many days through a Minnesota winter as a challenge with a friend – surprisingly that only made him like riding even more and ever since he has been hooked. Adam‘s favorite place to ride is Cuyuna on his Salsa Rustler. Worked in the bike industry for 15+ years, and his most recent bike related accomplishment was reducing the size of his herd from 10 bikes to 5.

 

 

Linda Stone

An experienced lawyer who also helped lead the revitalization of a grant-making non-profit, Linda helps to fuel the kids in her current work as a strategic director for an organization focused on relieving hunger for Minnesota’s kids. Her first bike was a green Schwinn, still remembered while she turns the crank on her De Rosa.

 

 

FullSizeRenderTerry Esau – Board Member Emeritus

The now National ED, this composer, producer, music super­star gave up his successful career to write books, ride bikes and become the fearless founder of Free Bikes 4 Kidz. He rides a Trek Madone with Di2 that costs more than his car­­, which says more about his car than his bike.
