Eamonn Powers is really happy to be doing things with the great people at Lems. Originally from New York City, he’s the son of some punk rock parents, he moved to Florida to go to school and to learn to fly airplanes.

He’s lived in Florida, California, Hawaii, and Mexico - eventually making it to St.Louis, where he lives now, in the Ozark Foothills. Eamonn’s goals now are not airborne, but grounded. He wants to help raise great people with his beautiful wife Shannon, he wants to explore every state with his kids in their VW Eurovan camper, and when he’s not doing those things he’ll be making sweet vegan grub, riding his KLR 650, or training to run his next ultra.
