I was 14-15 they were 18 and 19 some 21 even. So from 14-17 I was hanging out with two sets of people all the time…Once I was 17 I got my hands on a Fake ID that said I was 21. From that point on I went out to a bar almost every night if not every other night, & by doing so I managed to meet a lot of new people…When You & Marc www.strictlybmx.com were out with in Vegas with Me, You saw someone from each of those categories.
How’s living in a desert?
I have to deal with Dry Hot summers and cold winters. There is such a big climate change In Vegas. It will be 110 degrees in the summer and than turn around and be freezing in the winter.
Do you ride with TJ and Ricardo Laguna?
Nope, I never see TJ, and I see Ricardo more when I’m out of Town and when I am in town.
Who do you ride with?
You like Street or Park?
Both. When I am In Vegas I ride more parks than street, because I live 10 mins from Anthem. But when I’m out of town I tend to ride more streets.
What’s up with contests?
I love to watch contests but not compete in them. I’d rather go shoot a photo or get some footage. Once I learn the front flip and the 1080 I'll be at every contest. Just wait and see!
If you could go on a road trip anywhere in the world where would you like to go?
I’d want to go All over Europe. Starting somewhere in Spain I would begin working my way east to Italy. After Italy I would travel north to Paris, France & then once I got sick of Paris I would hit up Cologne, Germany. The Trip would end with me taking a train up to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Estimated travel time: 2 month
If you could live somewhere else in America where would you like to live?
Beverly Hills or New York City
What are your favorite tricks you like to do?
Not in any certain order Turndowns, Toothpicks, One-footed tables, Smith to back 180’s.
You used to ride for Premium, and got shifted over to Haro, What's it like being teammates with Ryan Nyquist and riding for Haro?
Growing up I never thought I would even meet Ryan Nyquist let alone hang out and ride with him (that goes for the rest of the team as well). So my answer to that question I guess would be unbelievable & Riding for Haro has been incredible. I could go on and on about both of these subjects for days but to sum it up, these past few years have been the highlight of my life. Not having a Job, Going to new cities, riding different spots, Meeting new people, going to new bars. What more could you ask for?
Have you ever dropped that you're team mates with Ryan Nyquist to pick up?
LOL Nah, but if you think it would work let me know.
How do you pick up Ish because I saw a chick swoop onto you the other night. I thought you must have already knew her?
How do I pick up??? I just stand around looking good and the girls just come to me. Hahaaa just playin'. Anyways, Nah I didn’t know her but she was fine! & One of the first things she did that night at the Hard Rock was to buy me a drink.
The worst thing about BMX?
It’s not as popular as Skateboarding.
Best thing about BMX?
Being able to go fast and fly through the air
