Let’s face it, I grew up in the dirt!
As a young Lad I grew up in Park City Utah. I attended College at the University of Utah then moved to Sunny Southern California where I spent most of my adult life before moving back to St George Utah. I am a proud Father to both a wonderful Son and Daughter and married to a beautiful wife who keeps me in check when needed!
My quest for the dirt all started when I was a little boy playing with toy cars and trucks. I was only interested in the ones with bigger tires and higher clearance.
Then it was on to Horses as my parents had them and we were raised around them. My idea of a Horse was much different than their’s of course, it was more like a cross between a Navy Seal and a Triathlete! I made those poor Horses run everywhere and swim in anything deep enough that I could find.
Oh boy, then I got my drivers license and I discovered 4WD, Horse Power, Low Range, Girls, and even bigger tires, . I think I counted (30) different Jeep’s, Truck’s, Toyota’s and custom built rock crawling buggies that I bought or built through the years!
Now that the times we’re a changing so was I. I really got into Mtn Biking scene and racing in the 1990’s as a sponsored factory rider and have had a blast ever since. I still ride, race, and help Coach the local High School Mtn Bike teams!
I also discovered 2 Wheel fun with Dirt Bikes and as usual got way into the Southern California Motocross scene. I still ride and have a blast just about every weekend!
As SXS’s got better I started to pay attention and took one out rock crawling on one of the hardest trails I could find one day and I was amazed to say the least! It was so much more fun and interesting to go fast AND smooth. I immediately sold my last Jeep and have been hooked ever since!
In 2013 I met the owners of Moto Zoo and they had just opened up a new Polaris store. Eventually it grew into its own and became Moto United in which we have both Honda and Polaris brands. I am the Sales Manager there and in charge of all major unit sales. I am also the go-to guy on just about anything to do with SxS’s or off road vehicles.
In 2014 I started racing SxS’s with a friend as a co-driver and we competed in one of the toughest races out there known as KOH (King Of the Hammers). We broke that year and DNF’d. The following year 2015, I talked the owner of Moto United into sponsoring a car and racing with me as co-driver. 53 SXS’s started that year and only 4 finished – we got 4th Pro in a Polaris RZR XP 1000 that I built and prepped myself!
This year 2016, we again entered in KOH and raced a Polaris RZR XP Turbo that I also built and prepped. This year we had many top level sponsors, like Walker Evans, STI, Fineline, Holz Racing and more. We also had many top level Pro racers we were competing against like Mitch Guthrie, Branden Sims, Blake Van De Loo, Robbie Gordon, Rob McCachren, Dustin Nielson, Jason Weller, and Oh wow what an amazing car we had and I finished 3rd Pro this year and the phone has been ringing non stop for next year!!!
I’m also proud of a very accomplished Sales career in which I have over 30 years experience and professionalism in that arena. I’ve always had a very simple goal and that is to always treat the customer just as I would want to be treated myself!
Since moving to St George from Southern California in 2004, I have enjoyed every minute of it here and found the perfect place to quench my thirst for the dirt!
