JAMEY DRISCOLL – CO-FOUNDER
"I wasn't satisfied with what was being offered as sports drink mixes. I started Asend with Mark to create a drink mix that I knew I could both recommend to anyone and confidently use myself as a professional athlete." -JD
Jamey is the real deal — good human, authentic guy, professional athlete. He holds over 30 UCI Cyclocross victories, plus he's won the New England Cyclocross series (2008), Cross Vegas (2009) and the National Championship for Single Speed at Fat Bike Nationals. He graduated with an engineering degree from University of Vermont and now calls Park City, Utah, home. While his career has revolved around cycling, he has a love for everything the mountains offer. He is often spotted ticking off training miles by riding to Alta ski resort, taking ski runs, then riding home. He's married to Carly and they welcomed their first child — Layla Ann Driscoll — in November 2017.
MARK FLIS — CO-FOUNDER
"Fueling for an all-day mountain adventure often takes a back seat to picking out your gear and route planning. Asend Nutrition takes the guess work out of the nutrition equation by using simple, natural, effective ingredients that allow your body to reach its best so you can simply have more fun out there." –MF
Skiing at an early age sparked Mark's passion for the outdoors and first exposed him to the Rocky Mountains. To hone his outdoors skills, Mark completed an Outward Bound trip in Colorado and then packed his bags for Gunnison, Colorado and obtained his degree in Outdoor Recreation and Business from Western State University of Colorado. While Mark completed his degree, he took up climbing and mountaineering and even spent a few summers with the National Outdoor Leadership School in Wyoming. After too many nights to count sleeping in a tent, Mark headed back to his hometown of Philadelphia to complete his MBA. Philadelphia is where Mark found cycling and in particular a love for cyclocross. Now he can be seen on the Utah podium at cyclocross races and was top 5 in his Master's cyclocross race at U.S. Nationals. Mark is married to Ali and they have two daughters, Evelyn and Madeleine.
CARLY DRISCOLL – MARKETING BOSS
"It's really fun to support my husband in this business venture and also super exciting to watch a brand come to life and activate it through all of my marketing knowledge." -CD
After climbing the ranks in professional water skiing, Carly traded in her water skis for snow skis. She spent a winter ski bumming in Taos before relocating to Utah. She works as a Digital Marketing Director and is the creative mind behind the marketing efforts at Asend. When it is not 9-5, she is found mountain biking, snow skiing, chasing her golden retriever, Parker, teaching girls to rip on bikes at Little Bellas, and raising a little adventurous daughter, Layla.
ALI FLIS – PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
"My role at Asend allows me to draw on my background in exercise science, my role as a physician and my experience as an athlete. After years of experimenting with nutrition products, I truly believe simple is best. What you see is what you get with Asend — simple, wholesome ingredients that fuel ideal performance." –AF
Ali has had many roles in sport - athlete, coach, sports performance trainer, and team doctor for a women's professional cycling team.

After a brief stint back in Philadelphia for medical school at Drexel University College of Medicine, Ali came back West and now resides in Park City, Utah. She currently balances working in an academic hospital, racing local cyclocross races, mountain biking the trails of Park City, skiing, and raising two adventurous girls with Mark.
