All time favorite artist and why? Shawn Barber. I dunno, I've always been interested in oil paintings. This is one I’ve always enjoyed and he’s an old school tattooer
The best trip you’ve ever been on? I went with from Vancouver to Tijuana 2010 on a fixed gear. I didn’t have to go to work, I didn’t have any place to live. It was really fun having the tents and just camping. It was just a really really good time. Also, In and Out Burger starts in SF and that was just bananas. I’ll never forget that day, they have a secret menu that was the best. And Carl's Jr. We met a lot of really neat people. Just me and Matt.
Favourite Instagram page you follow? @SimpsonsIG There’s no question after that. It’s so great. Tiny videos of the best parts of The Simpsons that exist, it’s fucking awesome. The greatest instagram on the planet. Or @DamienEchols his shit is absolutely bonkers/bananas.
If you could share a beer with anyone who would it be? Gary Busey. He’s the most terrifying, monster-like person ever.
Do you ride with any women? No. I usually ride alone. I never get a chance to get out of the house lately. I did ride with this girl Adrian who we met on the bike trip [to Tijuana]. Now she does a lot of bike blogs in the Bay area, check her out: Adrian Nevy @Adriennevy
What’s your bike? Specialized road bike with straight bars.
