Areas of Expertise


Professional Experiences

My professional experience includes being the current Editor-In-Chief for an off-road motorcycle magazine, as well as being a SAG certified Stuntman with experience in Stunt Driving, and Judge for Motocross events. 


Relevant Experiences

I have extensive experience and knowledge regarding the safe operation of off-road motorcycle and All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), having participated in organized ATV competition since the age of five, with my professional motorcycle career beginning at age 16. After several years of professional freestyle motocross competition, I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Communications and began working as an Associate Editor at a leading motorsports magazine, becoming the Editor-In-Chief in 2011. During my 10+ years there I have worked extensively as a test rider for our sister publication, which is primarily geared toward ATVs.

This experience has allowed me to evaluate ATVs in a variety of settings including motocross, off-road, trail riding, desert, sand dunes, endurance (24-hour) and even ice racing. While working at the magazine I also earned my SAG certification and began working as a professional Hollywood stuntman. The stunts that I do are varied but much of my work revolves around 2- and 4-wheeled motorized vehicles. I've appeared on ATVs in commercials and on film, and have recently been working on an upcoming film for 20th Century Fox where I have helped to evaluate, select, purchase, and modify a complete fleet of Honda ATVs, along with hand-picking the ATV-specific stunt doubles and riders.

I have prior experience serving as an expert witness.

My experience as a SAG-AFTRA stunt performer has given me invaluable experience in the safe handling of all types of motor vehicles, as well as the deliberate crashing, jumping, sliding, rolling, and skidding of two- and four-wheeled machines. Through my work for major motion pictures, commercials, and television shows, I have perfected the art of dissecting the science behind accidents, as well as specific skills such as judging speed, distance, near-misses, etc.
