Greenville, MI, United States

I grew up in Grand Rapids (born in St. Johns) and have always enjoyed working with my hands, making something out of nothing. In my early 20's, I began working with someone fabricating trucks. Whether we removed the sleeper off of an old truck or had a truck to be chopped and slammed, I was always happy with the end results. The low rider bike scene was brought to my attention by a friend who was in one of the clubs. I was hooked! Over the last 13 years, I have fabricated and built two of those bikes for each of my sons. I'm happy to do a collaborative effort with my friend Becky on this project because the whole is so much greater than the pieces individually. Tying them together to make a statement not only of discovery but of possibilities.
