Want to hear a crazy story?

This summer I was blessed with the opportunity to be in a National Toyota commercial. These guys don’t come along everyday so I knew I had to jump on it. After Rebuilding Ww Tahoe I smashed back down to LA to make the addition. The universe was on my side that day as I ended up booking the gig.
These jobs are typically pretty sweet. But I had no idea how badass this spot was going to be. From the desert to mountains this was one epic ride. The pyrotechnics in this spot alone rival a Hollywood blockbuster. To be a part of such a awesome crew of people and travel to some of the most beautiful places California has to offer was unbelievable. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have had this opportunity coming off of such a heavy injury. Truly blown away by the highs and lows this thing we call BMX has shown me. Life is one hell of a wild ride so hold on tight because it chances from one breath to the next….

Have you ever seen a desert sunset over the dunes ? Well, neither had I.

Dust storms are no joke in the dunes

Can I borrow this for minute please.

Morning commute to the set while filming in Mammoth. What you can’t see in this photo is the fact that I’m moving at 30+ mph gaining speed while trying to take a photo and not die.

June Lake, Mammoth California.

Lake jump any one ?

Once the commercial airs this september Ill post a few wild shots from this.
