Meet the Athlete

It all started when my mom found a flyer at a local bike shop. She had gone there to get something fixed on my bike and saw a flyer advertising the Las Vegas BMX track Nellis BMX. The next week we went out there to try it and instantly I was hooked. From that first day, all I ever wanted to do was be a pro BMXer. When I wasn’t riding BMX, I was watching it, and when I wasn’t watching it, I was thinking about it. At age eleven, I stopped playing all other sports and focused only on BMX. After a knee injury forced me to miss the first half of the 2011 season, I decided to turn pro upon my return in mid 2011 and really made a full commitment to try and make my dream a reality. I am now nine years into my pro career and still love it as much as I did when I was that young kid who would ride until the street lights came on. BMX truly is in my blood. Throughout my career my parents have been my biggest supporters and I have also been blessed to work with some amazing coaches, sponsors, and supporter who have helped me achieve nearly every title it is possible to achieve in the sport of BMX racing.
