“AS A TEX­TILE ARTIST, THE IN­SAN­ITY KEEPS MY CRE­ATIV­ITY FLOW­ING.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE FU­TURE OF THE MO­TOR­CY­CLE IN­DUS­TRY IS?

The coun­try is get­ting big­ger. More and more peo­ple are rid­ing to es­cape traf­fic, to es­cape their jobs and the big cities, to ad­ven­ture. It’s awe­some to see nor­mal folks ad­ven­tur­ing hard.

WHAT IS YOUR GREAT­EST LIFE ACHIEVE­MENT SO FAR?

Creat­ing my busi­ness from noth­ing— sur­pris­ing the hell out of my haters.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIG­GEST RE­GRET TO DATE?

I never re­gret any­thing.

WHAT IN­SPIRES YOU?

Amer­i­can denim, ni­tro meth­ane, leather craft­ing, Billy B.’s boat paint jobs, and vin­tage in­dus­trial sew­ing ma­chines.

DE­SCRIBE YOUR­SELF IN THREE WORDS.

In­tel­li­gent, funny, and cre­ative. There is a fine line be­tween in­tel­li­gence and in­san­ity. As a tex­tile artist, the in­san­ity keeps my cre­ativ­ity flow­ing.

WHAT IS YOUR ALL-TIME FA­VORITE BIKE?

1986 Fxr—the orig­i­nal Su­per Glide.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WORK IN THE MO­TOR­CY­CLE IN­DUS­TRY?

Start­ing GHETTOTOOTH, I used av­enues from pre­vi­ous mod­el­ing for mo­tor­cy­cle com­pa­nies to reach out to the same de­mo­graph­ics. And ev­ery­one loves side boob, don’t they?

ANY LAST WORDS?

Don’t take your­self so se­ri­ously. Have more fun. HB
