What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy playing golf, trail hiking, and going on day trips with my wife Kellie and dog Madison.
How did you come to start Lil' Bikes?
Not being able to work in the winter is tough, so I was trying to find some projects to work on. I love working on minibikes, especially Hondas and Yamahas, so I founded this company. The reason for starting this company was because my fellow crewmate Kurt asked me to restore his 1971 Honda Z50.
You have a passion for minibikes...why?
I grew up on a farm in central Indiana. My mom and two brothers all had minibikes. We rode them everywhere. It became a passion of mine quickly. Also, my wife showed me a picture of her riding a minibike as a kid. That VERY quickly inspired me.
What is your best childhood memory with your minibike?
Going to the lake house at Racoon Lake and riding the trails around the lake. It was so much fun.
What do you want readers to know about you?
I am always on the go and always have a particular way of doing things. I am a very passionate person and a perfectionist.
