How's the Portland summer treating you? Summer is so good this year. We've had some record heat waves, so I'm trying to ride as early as possible whenever I get the chance.
What have you been up to lately? Being a dad, working, and riding as much as I can. I'm trying to finish my part for the Goods BMX DVD.
What exactly is your day job? I do resets and remodels at grocery stores.
How much do you work? I work everyday. It gets hard sometimes because I just want to ride so bad, but it's gotta get done to support the family. I haven't slept past 6am on weekdays and 7am on weekends in several months.
How often do you get to ride? I get a session in pretty much everyday. Whether it's a good one or not, I just try to be on my bike for a bit.
Tell us a little bit about being a dad... It's a lot better than not being one! It's really put my life and everything I do in perspective. I don't find myself wasting much time anymore.
When are we going to see Levi on a bike? He's already been on a bike, but still has some work to do. Maybe I'll send him to Woodward to train! Haha.
How does your lady deal with parenting a child with a guy that pretty much has two full time jobs? She's doing good. It gets hard sometimes for both of us. We both have things going on besides normal jobs. Amy has a fashion line, so we usually have to remind each other that we have stuff to do and to give each other breaks so we can get it done.
What's your favorite shoe and what do you like about it? I really like the South Bronx. I don't worry about bruising my heels or anything. Great color-ways, look good, and not too bulky with plenty of support.
What is DollarBillParty and what happened to it? It was DollarBillParty.com, then DollarBillParty.net, and now it's DollarBillParty.nothing. It was fun running a functional blog for a minute, but I've got too much time on my hands right now to focus on anything other than family, work, and BMX.
What's the best strip club in Portland and why? I think Sassy's is everyone's favorite and I don't have to spend money there.
What are your plans for the rest of the year? Figure out my plans for the rest of the year, haha! Get my passport, go to a couple of contests, finish my section for the Goods video, and keep on pedaling.
Anything you'd like to add? Thanks to my whole family and everyone at Haro Bikes for all of the support on and off my bike and for keeping me motivated to be more than a bum.
