Do you remember the first time you saw a bike? What was so attractive about them?
 
When I was a little kid some kid next to us was in high school had an RD Daytona, it was loud and he would wheelie it down the street... I was riding my BMX bike around doing wheelies... It was a cool older guy that shared doing crazy stuff on two wheels. Lo and behold I have 2 RD 400's now.

What do you think attracts artists to motorcycles, and motorcycle culture?
 
Both are kind of on the fringe

With bikes, are superior aesthetics as important as superior functionality?
 
Both... A bike that looks great but runs like shit or fast bike that drives like a brick are useless.

Who shouldn’t own a motorcycle?
 
Anyone who has ever owned an ebike...

Give a little background to your work for the Soul Seekers show…
 
I just paint stuff I think looks cool, and motorcycles are cool

Why is it important for people to check out the show?
 
See some great art and cool bikes... and meet some cool people
