I am a Decatur, Illinois native, born and raised by a single mother with strong influences from my two aunts. I am a career firefighter and graduate of Millikin University where I was a member of my beloved fraternity, Kappa Sigma. I am a brother to an amazing sister, an uncle to one unbelievable niece, and a loyal friend to many.
First and foremost, I don’t build my motorcycles alone. I have a ton of help and I am still learning as I go. Together, my friends Josh McBride, Trevor Lahey, and Todd Speckman have taught me nearly everything I know about building bikes and fabrication. I could not do it without them. I have also learned a lot simply through trial and error and a “how to” book by Billy Lane of Choppers Inc.
Motorcycles are my passion. Motorcycles are my art. Motorcycles are my therapy. I don’t want to be the most famous bike builder in the world. I want to be the bike builder who does the most good through the art of the motorcycle.
