Born:Sept 9, 1991.
From: Riverside, CA.
Living Now:Riverside, CA.
Years Riding: I raced BMX for 12 years and fixed for about 4 years.
Favorite spot to ride: I don't have one. I constantly want to ride new spots. That's where the fun is for me. Since I'm not a park rider I can't say that I have a favorite park either.
Where do you think the sport will be in 5 years: Hopefully still thriving. I don't think it will ever be as technical as bmx, but at the rate the sport is progressing at, it can get close. I want to see more street riding and even some dirt! Lets get this sport out of the skateparks!
Favorite places you have traveled: Korea by far! Second would have to be Vegas as of right now.
Why 26" over 700c: To put it simply, I'm really short. I did my time on 700c wheels and quite frankly, it limited me. I wanted to have more fun and the fun stopped on 700c's. So I made the switch to 26" wheels over two years ago.
Favorite competition: Red Bull in San Francisco. It's the only contest I've been in to date, and everyone was there. It was sick to chop it up with all the main heads from all over. The park was alright too.
Favorite trick: Tuck no-handers. To me it's just one of the smoothest and fluid tricks u can do on a fixed gear. I am starting to like crank arm slides as well.
Worst fall: By Far the worst was this roof drop I did in one of my edits at my old high school. I biffed it real hard twice before landing it.
What is currently on rotation on your iPod: Nothing but hardcore all the time, constantly bringing the hate. Alpha and Omega, Blacklisted, Guns Up!, Gorilla Biscuits, Trapped Under Ice, and so much other heat.
