Why do you ride?
I ride for the excitement, love, and passion of motorcycles that I shared with my Dad.
Where do you ride?
Where is there not a good place to ride? Anytime you can be with your buddies, from riding at a local SoCal track or in the hills, is always great.
When you're not riding, you are...
If you don’t find me at the track riding or bantering with buddies on my tailgate, you can often find me with a microphone in hand announcing the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series or a number of two-wheeled events, like the LA County Over Hump Mountain Bike events. And of course I can’t forget about spending time with the family!
What do you do for a living?
Monday through Friday (or often seven day a week), I am an advertising representative for TransWorld Motocross, the number one motocross media company in the world. In addition to my sales grind, I help operate the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series, which had quickly become the largest amateur racing organization in Southern California, and over the past three years I’ve been fortunate enough to turn my skills on a microphone into a gig as an announcer.
Who are your heroes?
Easy enough, my Dad…
Motorcycle
Yamaha YZ450F
Track
I love them all in their own special way.
Races
TransWorld Motocross Industry Cup and of course the famed A Day in the Dirt.
Moto Memory
My first memorable moment was the first day I laid eyes on my Yamaha PW50 at the young age of 3, while my second was qualifying for Loretta Lynn’s in the +25 class in 2009. Sure, my results in Tennessee weren’t great, but managed to win the regional qualifier.
