Coordinator, Education & Encouragement, North County
Terrence is from Santa Maria, California. He grew up with a love of the outdoors, riding BMX bikes and attending frequent camping, fishing and backpacking trips. He attended Santa Maria Bonita School district elementary schools and graduated from Santa Maria High School. After attending Allan Hancock College, he transferred to California State University, East Bay. There he learned the power of bicycles and public transportation as a solution to many of the issues facing communities. After graduation with BA in Communication, Terrence returned to the Central Coast where he worked in the field of applied behavioral analysis and as an instructional assistant in special education classes at Santa Maria High School for 7 years. After volunteering at Santa Maria Bici Centro, Terrence was excited to learn of an opportunity with MOVE SBC to combine his love of the outdoors, bicycling and empowering students and joined the team as North County Education and Encouragement Coordinator in late 2021. Since then, Terrence has worked with several schools in the Santa Maria and Santa Ynez Valleys and is excited to bring bicycle education and empowerment to our community. In his free time, Terrence plays bass guitar in several local bands and enjoys camping, disc golf, skateboarding and of course, bicycling!
