How long have you been riding and how did you get started?
I have been riding for about four years and I got started when my parents bought me a full suspension from Toys-R-Us.
What keeps you motivated and pushes you to progress as an athlete?
I am motivated by the excitement of learning new things on my bike. There is always room for improvement so the excitement never ends.
What is your proudest moment as a professional athlete and what are your goals for next season?
Next season I want to compete in all of the major freeride and dirt-jump contests. I think riding riding for cameras is a blast, so I want to do as much filming for videos as I can.
What motivated you to sign with Fox and what do you think you can contribute to Fox as a company?
Fox makes tons of great products, so it is an honor to have the opportunity to represent the company. I hope that my riding in Fox gear will show how well the products really perform.
Any other comments or important factoids you'd like to share?
There is an awesome group of riders this year and it should be a ton of fun.
