My passion for trucks and engines began at an early age. As a kid, I spent most of my time in my dad’s diesel repair shop handing him the tools he needed and trying to learn what I could. You could also find me in the shop's yard sitting in the seat of a customer’s Peterbilt making engine noises, jamming gears, and talking with the local truckers over the radio, at least until my dad would catch me. Eventually, we moved to Spokane where my dad began working for my grandfather's construction business. This gave me a whole new mecca of equipment and diesels to play with.

Back then, my brother had a 1988 Toyota 4x4 pickup. I thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. Something about being able to throw some dirt bikes in the back and still being able to sneak into tight trails just made me love that truck. When I was old enough, I bought a 1984 Toyota extra-cab pickup. After rebuilding the engine and making it drivable, I drove it to school on 32s and thought I was the coolest kid around. Things progressed and I started working for a local off-road shop where I learned even more about off-road trucks and Jeeps. By then, my paychecks for selling parts to customers only went to buying parts for myself. I went from stock axles to building custom hybrid axles that held 37s. At this point I was getting tickets left and right. Fender flares. Mud flaps. You name it. I got pulled over for all of it. Eventually, all those tickets got me interested in buying a vehicle to tow with, which brought me back to my diesel roots. But owning a diesel didn’t change my habits. I just started building my wheelers bigger and meaner with one ton axles and 40s.

I was following Power Products closely back then because I was impressed with their builds and project vehicles. The day I noticed they had a position open for technical sales, I jumped at the chance. I truly believe this is one of the best companies to be with. The knowledge that’s under this roof is remarkable. We are all highly experienced with similar passions. This is what makes us so unique. We are not salesmen, we’re just guys and girls that love trucks.

In my off time, I am into motocross. I started riding at the age of two and racing at the age of nine. One of my proudest accomplishments is getting a 3rd overall at the 125 Dream Race at Washougal MX. On most weekends, you can still find me riding my KTM 24 on tracks from Washington to Oregon. When I am off the clock and off the bike, I like to be in the mountains, adventure riding, shooting, fishing, camping, or just spending time with my family.
