What are you known for around the store?
Some people started calling me grizz because of some of my bear hunting stories and the bear hide hanging in my office. I am also known for my obsession with old Honda XR dirt bikes. There’s also some strange false notion being perpetuated here that because I have red hair, I steal people souls. I have yet to steal one, even when I tried.
What’s the most interesting thing that’s happened to you at work?
I technically wasn’t at work but on my way back to work from a lunch break a few years ago I got into an accident on my street bike and broke my leg. (compound fracture of tib/fib) As I was waiting for an ambulance, I called my boss and told him I probably wouldn’t make it back into work that day.
What is a typical day like for you at work?
My days vary but on any given day I can be found meeting with reps, monitoring our social media accounts and responding to customer reviews, helping at the parts counter, attending meetings, monitoring parts inventory health, ordering, preparing reports, monitoring our website and Amazon seller account/orders and more.
Why do you like working at Rexburg Motorsports?
I love being able to work in the motor sports industry, but the main reason I have worked here for so long is due to the amazing people that work here or are involved in Rexburg Motorsports.
What is something unique about you?
I was born on leap day, I have a twin brother, and I have red hair.
What is your favorite food?
I don’t know if they count as food but I would have to say blue raspberry jolly ranchers! Me and my family also love to eat wild game meat.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love spending time with my family and being in the outdoors usually through hunting, camping, hiking, fishing, dirt biking, and backpacking. I also like reading and watching an occasional movie.
What do you love about motor sports?
I love the freedom and the sensory experience when riding, and being able to access some amazing places in the mountains.
If you could test one vehicle on the show floor right now, which one would you pick?
Probably one of the Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo machines. They are an awesome machine with lots of horsepower.
What is your favorite motor sports vehicle to ride and why?
My favorite type of vehicle to ride is a dirt bike. I just love the feeling of riding a single track up in the mountains and seeing some awesome country and the challenge a good trail gives.
