Primary riding discipline: Freeride
Hometown: Bend, Oregon but now living in St George, Utah
1) Favorite part about being a Title athlete?
I love the simplicity of all the components. Not too flashy, just makes the bike look clean. The Title team also feels like family. All the athletes are constantly killing it!
2) Most memorable riding moment?
When I was around 14, before I could drive, me and my buddy Milo would ride our bikes to the skatepark, the dirt jumps, or our local mountain (Mt. Bachelor) every single day in the summer. We'd stop at this gas station called Expressway every day before riding to get snacks for the ride. Those were the most memorable days for sure.
3) Bucket list riding locations?
I really want to ride Kamloops Bike Ranch or Highland Bike Park in the future. Also anywhere in New Zealand would be rad. But as of right now, I live right near Virgin, Utah which is hands down my favorite place to ride.
4) What are your hobbies and interests outside of riding?
In the wintertime I try to make an effort to go snowboarding quite a bit. In the summer I love camping and going wake surfing out on the lake with friends and family. I also really enjoy listening to music, always puts me in a good mood.
5) Who is someone that inspires you and why?
Outside of bikes, I've always been inspired by some of the moto guys like James Stewart and Jeremy Stenberg because they have such good style, and they always remember to have fun while riding. In MTB, I've always looked up to Graham Agassiz for the same reasons.
6) If you weren’t a professional rider, what would your career be?
I'm definitely not a professional rider, I actually detail cars to make a living at the moment. I enjoy it a lot but I'm still chasing that dream of riding full time!
7) What was your first mountain bike?
My first mountain bike was a Kona Cowan 24" dirt jumper and I got it when I was 13. I rode it for about two years and then got something else. But I still have the bike to this day!
