5 years old.
How did you get into Motocross?
My brother started when he was around 4 and he progressed really fast. At first I didn't want anything to do with it but eventually I started getting more into it, so my dad got me my first bike at 5 and from there on it's just been a passion to me.
Where did you grow up?
Do any athletes/riders influence or inspire your style?
Trey Canard for his will to never give up.
What do you like to do when you're not riding?
Gym, BMX, and hang out with all my local friends.
What bands/music are you into?
Pretty much Hip Hop and Dubstep, like Adventure Club and Tyga.
List a few highlights of your career:
Loretta Lynn's in 2009 -I won my first title there
Going over to Hawaii with the whole JDR crew to film a video!
What's your favorite race/event and why?
Loretta Lynn's because all of the races are on schedule and you can just relax in the creek and have a fun week with all of the activities you can do besides motocross.
What's your idea of an epic day riding?
Getting to do motos with all of your friends and have a good play session on the supercross track after.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
Well, I haven't been able to ride as much as I wanted to since Mini O's due to injury, but I would like to just show up and clean up in all of my classes, prepare myself for Loretta's, and have a successful year and not look back.
What's the best thing about being a motocross rider?
Not having to go to school everyday and get into all of the drama. I feel that motocross is just like job that you start at a young age, and it keeps you away from all of the bad things in life.
If you weren't a motocross rider, how would you want to spend your time?
BMX or skateboarding because I'm all into extreme sports.
Who would you like to thank?
My mom, my dad and my brother for being there for me at all times, and every single one of my sponsors that is out there supporting me for all of my success and being such great people to my family.
Any words of wisdom?
You won't get anywhere unless you are willing to put in the hard work that it takes.
