WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PRINT AD OR MAGAZINE COVER THAT YOU'VE BEEN FEATURED IN?

Transworld BMX cover from October 2003. I love that the photo is in my garage and that Ramsdell (Leigh) is making a goofy face in the background.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE VIDEO PART OR WEB EDIT THAT YOU'VE BEEN FEATURED IN?

Even though it's and obvious choice, Criminal Mischief would have to be mentioned. Derek and I put a lot of heart into that project and I'll always be proud of it. I was really excited about the TwobyFour Props section a couple of years ago.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CONTEST OF ALL-TIME?

The '94 NBL Grands. I won the National #1 14 Novice title. That might sound funny now but crossing the finish line and hugging my Dad is a pretty great memory. X-Games Silver in 2008 was pretty surreal too. I never thought I'd get an X-Games medal and to win your first at 28 was a pretty cool feeling. Then of course you can't beat the good vibes of the old La Revs, Metro Jams, and Backyard Jams. Sorry that's more than one. Too many great memories to pick just one.
