Best advice I’ve ever received: “Enjoy the little things in life because you ain’t gonna live it twice￼” . Mac Miller
I am originally￼ from the beach but now I live out on a old farm and a few acres. I skated for about 10 years before I got on a bmx bike for the first time and once I got on a BMX bike for the first time I knew it was love. ￼I’m currently building a municipal sized skatepark in my backyard for fellows riders 2 wheels or 4, to enjoy something we all love to do. My Rottweiler Diesel is my right hand man alongside my 12 Burmese Python, Princess. Animals are a gift and shouldn’t be treated any less then family.

I've been riding for about 2 years now but i've played hockey since i was in 4th grade and currently play varsity for my high school. Before i got my first bike i watched chris doyles part in kink bmx “squash it” this edit means so much to me because i first saw it when i was a dweeb in 7th grade haha and now it is such a nostalgic video for me. Bmx edits have a huge thing to do with my riding, i like to take a ton of riders edits and try and use their tricks to make a unique style of riding.
