I am a native Los Angeleno with deep family ties to Mexico. I attend school and worked in both countries and am also a citizen of both. I started riding motorbikes when I was 12 until I was 16, spending that time on motocross tracks, deserts and vacant lot shenanigans. I resumed riding again at 48 once my daughters were in college and have not stopped since. I try to take at least 2 lengthy motorcycle trips, domestic and international as well as 1 or 2 different types of motorcycle classes a year. I own my own business which gives me the freedom to pursue this passion. Our family consists of my wife, 3 daughters and 2 parrots. I owned and ridden many types of motorcycles, I enjoy eating all foods except coconut and experimenting with unknown cuisines . I believe a good martini after 5 is good for the soul. I enjoy wandering whenever possible. I am excited to be part of this journey, which came my way on a lark. I met Tom at a pre-pandemic Rawhyde event, after a bit of chit-chat he gave me his card. I decided to reach out to Tom after seeing that card sitting on my work bench for over 2 years now... and here we are. I’m really looking forward to being more than a tourist.
