I began riding BMX after I found the sport of skateboarding too limiting. I enjoy flying high in the air, and BMX afforded me the opportunity to do just that. I bought my first bike during my freshman year of high school and have been hooked ever since. I spent two weeks at Woodward West two summers in a row, progressing and learning skills like how to backflip. I made some awesome friends that showed me how awesome the riding community really is. I have also build numerous ramps at my house, so I always have something to practice on. In addition, I have become very involved with the dirt jumping scene in the Monterey Bay area. Dirt jumps are my favorite thing to ride because of how smooth the jumps are and how high one can go. Overall, I simply love riding my bike and never intent to stop.
The highlights of my life in the BMX and mountain bike dirt jumping community are numerous. My favorite moments are when I am with all of my friends, building and riding secluded trails. Just hanging out and really enjoying life is what riding is all about. Another one of my favorite moments on a bike is when I jumped the world-famous Post Office Dirt Jumps in Aptos, California. I was very proud of myself because of the courage it took to go for it, and it was the first time I ever hit pro-level jumps. This has allowed me to progress my riding to new levels. In recent months, I have been at numerous skateparks where people are really impressed by my riding and ask if I am sponsored. This is truly one of the best feelings, when people are stoked on how you are riding.
My plans for the next year are to attend college at Santa Clara University, and continue riding with a new level of intensity. I want to ride and progress every day, going bigger and higher. I hope to be sponsored and be able to represent an awesome company. It would truly be a dream come true and I believe that I am very capable of representing a product well.
