How and when did you start riding, how has it evolved ever since, and what got you into racing?
I started riding when I was 2 years old on a PW50 and started racing at 4. My dad was always involved with motorcycles and owned his own shop so I was always around it. My first national was at World Mini in Vegas at 6 years old and I have been going strong ever since.
Was there any particular experience that made you consider pursue racing professionally?
Well I think every kid who races would love to make it to the pro level, for me I started to realize I had a good chance to go pro back in '07 when I got my team green deal.
Who were/are your idols on and off the track?
I'm gonna have to go with Ryan Villopoto with this one because watching him on a 250f was insane, it was like he never lifted and always had a good attitude.
Do you have any specific goals for your racing in your future?
I would just like to be on a solid team with great bikes and be a consistent podium guy!
In what conditions and what terrain do you most enjoy riding?
I enjoy riding a really grippy track with big jumps on a nice breezy day.
Any activities that aren't moto-related?
I love to fish that's about it.
