What are you known for around the store? I am known as the Bike Guy. I’ve been a total nerd of motocross for 25 of my 28 years alive. Anything concerning Moto, most of my coworkers turn to me for answers.
What is a typical day like for you at work? I work at the counter finding parts and accessories to make the ride more enjoyable for customers both in house and on the phone. It’s a blast helping a customer take a vision in their head of how they want their machine set up and getting the parts found to make it a reality.
Why do you like working at Rexburg Motorsports?  I work at RMS because I love the power sports industry. I enjoy using the knowledge that I’ve gained through the years to help others have a blast on a machine. Being able to work with people that like the same hobbies that I do is fun and makes my work days fun.
What do you like to do in your free time?  I try to fill my free time with Dirt biking, BMX racing, or hanging with my wife and kids. More of that free time is getting filled with my sons addiction, Basketball. At 5’7″ basketball was never my thing but I love that he loves it.
When is the last time you laughed so hard you cried? On my last trail ride, my dad, uncle, and myself were going down the back side of Garnes Mountain and I scared my dad pretty good. I had my bike shut off and was just in neutral, when I was passing him I shouted “Yahooooo!” He had no idea I was coming. I laughed pretty good at that.
What do you love about motorsports? What I love about motorsports is the freedom and the adrenaline spike. There is nothing like that feeling when you hit a rutted corner right or throw a whip off your favorite jump.
What is your favorite motor sports vehicle to ride and why? If I could test ride one machine I would pick… Haha who am I kidding… I would love to try all of them! I would love to do my own 450 Motocross shoot out, but if I can only pick one I’d like to try that new RMZ450.
