Battery engineering manager for K2 Energy; age 38

My most prized possession is my Ultra-Motor E-bike. I got it two years ago from Ultra Motors in San Francisco. I make eco-friendly batteries for a living, so it’s only natural that I ride my bike to work. It’s fun dashing by other cyclers and getting that “wow” look as I pass them by at 23 mph with minimal effort. I just love these light electric vehicles and hope America embraces them as an alternative.
