BIO: I’m just a kid who fell instantly in love with two wheels, and big hills! I am so blessed to be a second generation hill climber and had a dad that put me on a bike before I could even walk. At four years old I dreamed of conquering hills and spent every minute possible on my dirt bike. I still do today. Growing up on mini bikes and trophy hills I counted every birthday as one step closer to being able to someday ride as a pro. Hill climbing is one of a kind where riders across the continent come together to race, laugh, and smile. We all have a good time but at the core, we really are truly a family. It is a thrill and privilege to compete all over the country with the best of the best riders and I’m sincerely a much better rider because of it. For me, hill climbing is a lifestyle, not just a season. I wake up every morning with a smile on my face and a passion for what I love to do. In the end some dream about the possibilities of being a champion. I go out and make it happen every day through passion and hard work.

Nitro Nationals, Sunnyside, WA. Because the venue has great potential and every year gets better. It’s a hill that makes people want to come back each year to climb. I like it because it’s a big hill and they set it up well!
