When did you turn pro?
I turned pro in the US in 2008.

What are the events, wins, memories that stand out most throughout your career so far?
Definitely winning the ABA pro title in 2010 was a huge thrill. That title has been something that I have dreamt about since I was 6 years old.

If there’s one thing that people in the industry would recognize you by, what would that be?
I think a hard worker and OCD with my training.

When did you first start riding? Where/why?
I started in my back yard and around the neighborhood when I was 6 years old. I like it because it was up to me to do what I wanted to with it, it was just me and my bike.

What drives you to be sicker than everyone else?
The thrill of being able to know that you're sicker then the other guy.

If you weren’t ripping on a bike, what kind of menial task would you want to do?
I think now race MX for sure that sport is so sick.
