How did you get into motocross?
I started in BMX and when I was 10 I saw a 50cc in a moto magazine and asked my dad if I could get one. Once I rode it one time it was all over.

How old were you when you started riding?
10 years old.

Where did you grow up?
Southern California.

How did you first get introduced to TLD and/or Troy?
I wore TLD when I did BMX and I just carried it over into motocross.

How long have you been riding for TLD?
Since around 2006.

Which TLD products are you using?
I use everything TLD makes for moto.

Do any riders influence or inspire your style?
I really enjoy watching Christian Craig ride and try a little bit to look like him.

What do you like to do when you're not riding?
I recently started to ride jet skis, but I don't really do much outside of motocross.

What bands/music are you into?
I like to listen to Country and some Rap / Hip Hop.

List 3 goals you have for the upcoming season:
1. Podium finishes as much as I can
2. Stay healthy.
3. Try my best and push forward to the pro level.

List a few highlights of your career:
2nd at Oakhill in 2011.
7th at Loretta's in School Boy 2.
Some top 5 finishes throughout the year.

What's your favorite race/event and why?
My favorite race would have to be Loretta Lynn's. It is well organized and the track is really fun.

What's your idea of an epic day riding?
Going out to the hills and doing some motos on the rough tracks, then trail riding and finding new jumps.

What's the best thing about being a motocross athlete?
It's just awesome to be able to work hard and enjoy something I love to do.

If you weren't a motocross athlete, how would you want to spend your time?
I don't know what I would do without motocross. It's pretty much all I do!

Who would you like to thank?
My parents, Troy Lee Designs, Temecula Motorsports, Toyota of Escondido, Race Tech, Spy, Twin Air, Factory Backing, Dunlop and Arma Energy SNX.

Any words of wisdom?
Never give up and always work and try your best.
