“Growing up as an aspiring BMX rider, I looked up to the craziest dudes in the game, like Chester Blacksmith, Sean Burns, and Alex Liiv. I always wanted to be a professional BMX rider, I just wasn't sure how to do it. Once I made my way out to Cali, I knew that my passion could turn into my job and that motivated me more than anything. The main thing about BMX culture that keeps me going is the freedom it gives me. This passion of mine has taken me to many different places around the world and introduced me to so many great people. Competing isn’t really my jam, but the adrenaline you get when overcoming fear and conquering something that has put you through the ropes? That’s a pretty damn good feeling.”
