My dad has always been around it. He got me started when I was young.
How old were you when you started?
4 years old.
Where did you grow up?
15 miles East of Fertile, Minnesota, on a lake.
How did you first get introduced to TLD and/or Troy?
Roger Hendricks contacted the team. Dad and I took advantage of the idea and got a relationship going. Eventually, we flew down and met with Bill and Troy.
How long have you been with TLD?
Which TLD products do you use?
Helmets, moto jerseys, gloves, tee, hoodies, jeans, socks, belts, decals, luggage, wallets, protective gear. Pretty much everything!
Do any athletes inspire your style?
Yes, I think a lot of them do. I’m keeping my own style though...maybe one day some others will get inspired by me.
What do you like to do when you're not racing?
I wakeboard, jet ski, surf and hunt.
What bands/music are you into?
I’m kinda all over. I like a little of everything. My top 2 bands would be Rise Against and Otherwise.
What are some of your favorite foods?
Cheese and lasagna.

What is your favorite race/event and why?
XGames. It is such a big race and I have wanted to race it all my life. Now that I do, it makes it a blast.
What's your idea of an epic day riding?
When the trail is gnarly and rough and everything is clicking that day.
What's your favorite place to travel to?
I’ve done a couple races in Sweden and it is a long flight but a cool country.
What's the best thing about being a professional athlete?
There’s no homework. There is a lot of hard work but it’s been my dream to do this...it is my dream job.
If you weren't a professional athlete, how would you want to spend your time?
I would probably be going to college and working for my dad.
If you were running things, what would you change about the industry?
That’s a tough one. We have a limit on what we can do and where we can go because we need so much snow for our sport.
Who you would like to thank?
Dad, Mom, Kora, Josie, Drew, Betsy, Ethan, the entire team. Arctic Cat, Royal Distributing, TLD, Virus, APV Oil, Drift, Stud Boy, Fox Shox, Speedwerx.
Any words of wisdom?
Never give up and always believe in yourself. Push yourself to your own limits.
