Volunteer of the month: Calvin

calvinCalvin started working at the bicycle exchange in 2014 and was promoted to QA about 6 months ago, so you'll see him wearing the yellow/green vest making sure that bikes are fixed to the specifications before donation. He found the Bicycle Exchange as he was looking for bike parts on Yelp to fix his own bike. Calvin finds truing wheels some of the hardest work on a bike, but also the most satisfying when done right. He grew up in Connecticut then Minnesota and went to college in Atlanta before coming to Stanford for graduate school in Biology. Calvin also enjoys making videos, taking photos, and cooking.
