When I’m not riding I like to hang out with my friends, swim, jump on my trampoline, and ride at skate parks.

What's your favorite race/event?
The BMX World Championship.
What's your idea of an epic day riding?
My idea of a epic day of riding is at 10:00 a.m, race/practice; 11:00 a.m, dirt jumping; 12:00, chill; 1:00, skate park; 3:00, swimming/trampoline; 5:00, dinner. That would be one epic day.
What's the best thing about being a BMX athlete?
It is super awesome riding all over the country and world. I am really popular in school and the community, and I love the level of competition.
If you weren't a BMX athlete, how would you want to spend your time?
I would probably play baseball. And I would be really crazy because if I didn’t BMX, I wouldn’t have anything to use my energy on.
If you were running things, what would you change about the industry?
I would let girls race boys at the local races so that I could have some competition and I could get faster.
Who would you like to thank?
My mom and dad, Troy Lee Designs, Deak Brown, Turnell Henry, the Bike Shop in Henderson NV for always hooking my bike up, all of my sponsors, and my team.
Any words of wisdom?
Try as hard as you can.
