I am a professional BMX athlete living in Greenville, NC. I represent Eastern Bikes,Vans Shoes, Bern Helmets, Novik Gloves and Armoudillo belts.
Originally from Cape Cod Massachusetts , I developed my passion for riding at thelocal skateparks, dirt jumps, and street spots. I made a name for myself by placingtop 10 in a web video contest in 2007 put on by Haro Bikes. Later that year, I mademy first Dew Tour competition in Salt Lake City where I was the first rider to ever doa bunnyhop double tailwhip off a wallride at a contest. I made the move toGreenville, NC aka "Pro Town USA" in 2008. In 2009 I won the Jomo Pro contest aswell as best trick with the first 360 barspin-barspin- tailwhip, made my first X-Gamesinvite appearance, rode my first international contest, and placed 7th at Dave Mirra`spersonal invitational contest at his warehouse.
In April of 2010 I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. (See video 1) This was the mostmajor set back of injury I have ever had but it was successfully removed. In my returnto riding in June 2010 I was back into filming, traveling and riding in demos. I placedtop 10 in my first contest back at Nass in Somerset, UK in July. I was then offered awildcard to the final two stops of Dew Tour, and at the Las Vegas stop I made my firstfinal. (See Interview) Since then I have had the most fun I can with BMX, rode contests,filmed heaps of videos, taken photos for magazines, and have also been fortunateenough to travel the world promoting what I love to do most!
