I served in the Marine Corps for nearly two decades. I rode 2-3 times per week for many years and then took time off due to military service and to raise my kids as a single parent. Now I’m back! I mainly ride local tracks here in Southern California, but also ride cross country and in the desert occasionally.
I am a member of Veteran MX Foundation (VetMX) and really enjoy riding with fellow veterans. More so, I enjoy supporting active and former service members who are just getting into the sport. Motocross helps heal the scars of military service and provides an outlet for the stress of life during/after service; throttle therapy.
I'd like to continue progression of riding techniques to make me a safer and faster rider. I also would like to spread the sport to other veterans in search of a brotherhood and "throttle therapy" outside the service; this is where I will be able to spread the word best about the gear I use and how it feed into my goal of being safer and faster.
