WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I'm originally from Oklahoma, it's really cool. There is no one around and all we used to do was ride dirtbikes and go fishing and other country stuff.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING? Nothing. I go to school.
HOW'D YOU DISCOVER BMX? No idea. I've always built little jumps and stuff in my backyard and messed around, but I didn't know anything about what I was doing. I guess it was when I started riding our local skatepark. I met a few people that kind of got me into it.
DESCRIBE AN AVERAGE DAY FOR YOURSELF. Monday and Wednesday, I have school all day. I'll sometimes call my friend Miles Simone and we will try to meet up and ride when I'm off.
DESCRIBE YOUR LOCAL SCENE. It’s mostly a bunch of kids who are all pretty new to riding. They are cool though. On weekends, I'll usually try to meet up with all the guys from LA, which is like 30 minutes south of where I live.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT RIDING? Hanging out with all of my friends and the fact that it's really fun. That's really the only reason I do it.
WHO DO YOU LOOK UP TO IN BMX? Anybody who is really smooth and makes what they are doing look good. Corey Bohan, Chase Dehart, Tom Blyth, Eddie, Edwin, Ian Schwartz... this could go on all day. I like watching all of my friends ride too.
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE NOT RIDING? Hang out with my friend Annie or go to school. I don't have too much going on usually...
WHAT DOES WETHEPEOPLE MEAN TO YOU? Well they are the first and only people to help me out as far as bike riding goes. So they mean a lot to me. I don't know, I'm just really thankful I guess. I know there are tons of other people who deserve it and I'm glad they are into me.
THANKS? Everyone at Wethepeople. My parents. And I'd like to give a shout out to Barney at Tip.
