Profile:

When did you start riding?: I started riding when I was 14 back in 1997.

When/how did you know BMX is what you wanted to do as a career?: Every kid that rides wants to do it for a job as soon as they hear it's possible!! I figured out that I could actually do it full time back in 2003 when I started making good money and got into the X-Games.

Who do you look up to and why?: I look up to my Dad because he is a smart Godly man that loves the Lord, his family and always has the right words at the right time!

What is your favorite spot to ride?: it really depends on the day and how I am feeling, but probably Lot-8 at Woodward in PA. I always have a great time out there!

What are 3 things you never leave home without?: Shoes, my pocket knife, and my phone!

Favorite Food?: It's a split between Mexican and Sushi!

Favorite Movies?: Snatch, Predateor, 300... all the good ones!

Favorite TV shows?: The Big Bang Theory, Seinfeld, Dexter, Justified...

Favorite Music?: Metric, Zeppelin, pretty much anything but country...

Best day of your life so far?: July 25th, 2007! I married my wife that day!

If you weren't a pro athlete, what would you be doing?: Graphic Design somewhere!
