Where is your favorite place to ride?
That would either be Silverstar Bike Park on a rainy day, or Coast gravity park, I've never had a bad day of riding at that place.
If you weren't a Pro Rider, what would you be doing?
Riding for fun and probably be in school, I have no clue what I would do for a job.
What are some of your favorite musical artists?
Nirvana, Motorhead and Kendrick Lamar
What do you like most about riding for Fox?
The support I'm getting from them for sure, they are so on it. Also, being able to wear and represent the gear that you always wanted as a kid is pretty cool.
What motivates you to ride MTB?
Just the feeling you get when you're riding, I don't think I can find that anywhere else.
As a Pro, what is your most proud MTB moment?
Probably making finals at Red Bull Rampage last year, I had no clue if I could even ride down any of the stuff we built, so to have everything work out was awesome.
