    Stunting for: "I was doing stunt riding since day 1.
                         I have always been fascinated by the
                         freestyle aspect of motorcycling and
                         driven to accomplish as much with it
                         as I can."

    Favorite Trick: Super Street Bike Dubbed:
             'Kane Insane'      "I was honored to have a
             trick named after myself… basically I do a
             12 O'Clock and while the bike is scraping
             on the bar I jump up to the headlight &
             perform a handstand. All while the bike is
             in motion."

    New Tricks: "There are so many new & technical
             tricks that I enjoy practicing and learning...
             too many to really name any in particular.
             Circle wheelies, & handbrake specific tricks
             tend to be high on my list of tricks that I am
             putting a lot of effort into learning. Along with
             many new freestyle balancing act tricks that I
             have been working on as well."

    Crashes: "Too many to count unfortunately.
             Ive wrecked at 85mph, and been run
             over by my own bike on several

             have been fairly mild. Broken foot (twice),
             Broken Ribs, Road Rash, & Exhaust Burns."

    Stunt Team: "I've really only had one team
             affiliation since I began my stunt riding
             career, & as of 4 months ago I decieded it
             would be better to split away from them &
             continue on solo."

    About other stunters/teams: "For the most part the
             Freestyle Street Extreme crowd tend to be
             quite friendly and helpful towards each other.
             We really are like one big family & tend to try
             hard to help one another whenever possible.
             For me, attending events & competitions are
             sometimes very similar to attending a family

    Competed in: "My website has a full listing of all
             the numerous events I have attended,
             performed at, & compete at. I was just
             recently invited to compete at the inaugural
             Freestyle Street Extreme entry into the
             Mountain Dew Action Sports Tour
             (formerly known as Gravity Games)."

    Awards won: "I've won several small scale
             competitions & events. Sickest trick
             events usually being my favorite."

    Video appearances: "A full videography of all
             video appearances can also be found on
             my website, with many for sale."

    Future plans: "To continue to ride my bike
             everyday for as long as I can."

    Future of Stunting: "I have high hopes that our
             sport will flourish & possibly grow into a
             much larger more financially backed sport;
             Equal to that of FMX & skateboarding."
