I was born November 13, 1979 in Fort Jackson, SC. I grew up in the suburbs of Richmond, Va. I joined the army in 2001 to serve my country as an infantry man. I spent a year in Iraq fighting the war on terror.


One day I found an old motorcycle magazine while on R&R in the desert, and dreamt of eventually owning a motorcycle. I finished my service in 2004 and still had the passion for bikes, growing stronger every day. In 2011, I decided to drop everything and pursue a career in motorcycles. I sold my car and bought my first bike, a 2001 Harley Sportster, which I still own today. I moved to Orlando to attend MMI where I studied Harley, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Yamaha. While attending MMI, I was offered the opportunity to work at Southern Cycles and have loved it every day since. 


My passion and love for bikes continues to grow every day. It's great to work for such an honest and decent shop. It's such a great life when you get to live your dream. It honestly isn't work when you love what you do!
