Bike Company: Of course I’m biased and gotta show love to Nowear BMX. Otherwise I’d say Reklamation bikes as the owners are good friends and they are always focused on helping others and intent on growing BMX in positive ways.

Bike Shop: Can’t choose just one, I’m a huge fan of every rider owned shop that does their part to keep our scene thriving. Local to me I’d say “The Bike Rack” they are the biggest donor to date for The Nowear Compound’s free indoor bike park project.
Restaurant chain: I’m a Chipotle guy but prefer eating & supporting local.
Clothing company: Perfect High Five out of South Dakota. I love smaller based Tee shirt companies that help their local scenes and the crew at PHV are exactly that.
Phone: iPhone’s, I've always been an Apple guy since the Mac Cube days making fun BMX and Skate vids with my friends.
Music: Punk Rock baby! Favorite band is “The Killigan’s"
Ramp Rider: I can’t narrow it down to just one. For creativity Sam Bussell, big & smooth Jacob Thiem, makes me smile every second Dan Nielsen & Mason White, pushes me to learn still at my age Jaramiah Droescher. I literally love riding with all my teammates, friends any and everyone who has fun! But, being a dad I’m my happiest having anytime riding with my kids.
Street rider: Sean Burns for continuing to bring a raw edge into today’s industry. He still does what most of us mid-school dudes wish we could do. Thanks for inspiring Sean!

Final thoughts: I love life and appreciate the opportunities I’ve been given. I’m a firm believer in giving back and helping in my community. I believe in focusing on what unites us, not what divides us. I’m just a big new age hippie who loves everyone and invites anyone to come shred with me and my family year round at The Nowear Compound. Stay Rad everyone!
