"Throughout my younger years, when not surfing, I spent my free time riding motocross bikes in the wide-open Mojave Desert and on the rocky trails of California’s central coast."
I was born in Priest River Idaho to hippy parents that made sure we were outdoor kids from the get go. We spent our days running wild in the forest and riding dirt bikes at a very young age. My extended family was big into riding but I did not have my own bike until I was in high school. At age 8 we relocated to Santa Barbara, California where I lived for 25 years.
Throughout my younger years, when not surfing, I spent my free time riding motocross bikes in the wide-open Mojave Desert and on the rocky trails of California’s central coast. I fell in love with big bikes somewhere between discovering the Dakar Rally and reading Ted Simons’ Jupiter’s Travels. I ran out and spent every last penny I had buying myself a KTM 990 Adventure. That bike changed my whole outlook on riding, I became obsessed with going further and further. I rode that beast into the ground and have been a KTM fanatic ever since. I slowly began documenting my weekly moto trips on social media, and immediately started meeting like-minded people from near and far. As my circle of riding buddies grew, I eventually got to know some badass, ambitious riders that were planning bigger trips all over the western US and I wanted in! I will always be grateful for the people I have met and the amazing rides I have been on within this tight knit ADV-Moto community.
After 15 years working in sales and marketing for the beer industry, I have finally made the leap into the motorcycle world full time. My family and I packed up our things in Colorado and hit the road to the Pacific Northwest. My immense passion for adventure riding makes my job very fulfilling. I look forward to sharing the stoke and spreading the Mosko Moto vibe all over the world!
