Tell us about your bike/vehicle setup.
MTB: Blur LTc, FOX Factory Series 36 TALAS 160 FIT RLC, and Factory Series FLOAT RP23 shock, Shimano XTR, XT, and Saint combo. Jet ski: Yamaha Superjet 701 that's highly modified for freestyle riding.
What else is in your garage?
1996 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 suspended by FOX, a couple of kayaks, 22.5cc Off-Road scooter, and a Yeti dirt jumper.
Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
I fractured two vertebrae in my neck. You never fully recover from that, but I was very lucky to have gotten away with that one.
What motivated you to get started professionally?
As a means of transportation, and to be the kid who could wheelie the longest, bunny hop the highest, and jump the farthest. I still hope to achieve those goals one day.
What's your favorite part about working at FOX?
It's just like the stupid golf and fishing bumper stickers: A bad day at FOX is better than a good day at a boring job.
What other sports are you interested in?
Hockey, Outrigger Canoe, and Wii bowling.
