About me: The moment I threw a leg over my first bike at age 4, a relationship with 2 wheels was formed and has shaped a big part of my life. From the moment before setoff of a ride, with nothing holding back, a sense of freedom fills the body. Be it motorized or pedal powered, complete harmony between rider and bike creates a need to be in the moment. Thoughts of what is going on at the office or the bills that have to be paid begin to lift. You are free to be only in the present. Motorcycles inspire me to keep my eyes forward, head clear and focused on the goal at hand.

Future goals:    – Design, build and race a frame up 450 rally bike in the Dakar Rally
– Travel the Pan-America Highway from start to finish
– Complete the Erzberg Rodeo
– Adding growth within the sport and lifestyle by building a community of commonality
