What is rockstar games? It’s a video game company that sponsors Kink. They put out games like Grand Theft Auto3, Max Payne, and Smugglers Run. We all got Playstation2’s and I’m so psyched. I can’t stop playing it.

Where do you live currently? I live in San Diego, California.

What is the best time you had riding this year? When Kink went on tour to Canada. I had so much fun there and traveling with the team. They’re my best friends.

How often do you get to travel? I travel all the time. I have a full schedule the next few months so hopefully I will be pretty busy.

How’s the riding scene in San Diego? Everyone here is real cool. All the dirt brothers live here, and they are a bad ass team. Plus you (Ryan Sher) just moved in with me so we ride all the time. Now everyone here pretty much rides their asses off and has fun doing it.

How does it feel to be one the same shoe team as Dave Voelker? Oh shit, Dave Voelker is more amazing than ever. Every time I see him he gives 100 percent, he’s one of my childhood heroes.

Speaking of childhood heroes who are some riders that have influenced you over the years? I would have to say Dave Mirra, Mat Hoffman, Dave Parrick, Dave Voelker, and Jay Miron. These guys paved the way for what BMX is today and they are still on top.

What else are you into besides BMX? Well I follow skateboarding a lot and I’m into racing cars and music, that’s pretty much all I have time for.

So I hear that Kink is working on a video? Yeah we are in the process of filming now. That’s what is taking up a lot of my time. I hope it turns out well.

Anyone you would like to thank? Kink. Odyssey, Aera, Hanger94, Innes, Wiggins, Screech, Z ack Phillips, Jim Bauer, Greg Witt, and all my homies.

Anything else you would like to say? Yeah, kids, don’t do drugs, stay in school.

Fufanu out of a ditch in San Diego.
