Other Stuff

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!

Complaint Department

  • Here are a few things that drive me nuts!
  • My Father: What a Dork! and that is the G-Rated version. I guess he is the reason I never did drugs or alcohol. I just couldn't see what was so enjoyable about being drunk all the time. I haven't seen him in over 18 years.  I just thought of something he told me after my 1st year of racing. He said that I was too old for BMX Racing and that I should give it up! Do you think I really listened?
  • Bad Drivers: You know the kind that stay in left hand lane all the way to Vegas on the I-15 doing about 60 MPH! Las Vegas has some of the worst drivers in the world but at least I know they are out to get me so I look for that there. San Pedro is full of bad drivers and they haven't got a clue what they are doing. Most people get lost here as soon as they leave their driveway.
  • Little League Parents in BMX: I really would love to take some of these idiots and put them on a bike and show them what it feels like to get sent flying off of a berm.
  • California: I hate living here! Traffic everyday! Crowds everywhere you go, Smog, I wish I could go home to Las Vegas, only problem is I have a great job with the City of L.A.
  • Living with an illness: this really sucks!
  • People who hide behind "Online" names on the internet and say shit about people. If you can't say it to my face then I guess you're full of Shit!!!

Am I Bragging???

 Maybe I am, maybe I'm not. I'm just proud of some of the things I've done in my life. I've had some good times and some bad times just like anyone else I guess. If people don't like it, well than that's just too bad!
