So what am I really like?
I'm not an expert on Astrology but I'm a typical
Virgo. Perfectionist, neat freak the whole deal.
I've always been very shy and not very talkative
except when it comes to BMX racing. I feel this shyness has cost me dearly in the past and the present. My 7th grade
music teacher told me that I had a great singing voice and I should try and pursue a singing career when I got older. The
trouble is I have extreme stage fright. Only a couple of people have ever heard me sing.
I'm a whole different person when I'm at
a BMX race. Everybody knows me and I don't ever seem to shut up. It's like I'm with my family when I'm at a race. I totally
feel at home when I'm at a BMX race. I guess that's why I love it so much. I really enjoy teaching kids about BMX. I'm always
giving advice to kids and the guys I race. The one thing I teach to people in BMX is that it takes heart to win a race more
than physical ability. The Boulder City National that I did really well at is a good example. I was extremely sick, in
fact I had major surgery a month later.
Whether I'm at a race or at home I have always
enjoyed playing practical jokes on people. I'm usually doing something to somebody just to get a laugh but I would never
hurt anyone doing it. I know sometimes people think of me as some kind of psycho. As long as I'm not hurting anyone
I don't care what they think of me.
I guess I don't take things so seriously
anymore since my best friends are gone now. Things like that and living with an illness everyday makes you think about life
and how we live it. We're not on this rock for very long so you
might as well enjoy it while you can!
