I rode that Suzuki for hours at a time around the yard. This went on for years until I outgrew it. Soon it was time for a dirt bike. A bit more intimidating, but I gave it a shot. My friends quickly noticed my dads ever growing Triumph collection. His current collection has 30+ bikes. At that point there was tremendous pressure to get into motorcycles. So I decided to leave it all behind. I dyed my hair blue and taught myself to play the drums.
Years later I started to see motorcycles in a new light. How people, including my dad, express themselves through riding, collecting and building. Rediscovering motorcycles on my own terms changed my life. It allowed me to find meaning, purpose and enjoyment in ways that weren’t there before.
Working with Iron and Air would allow me to pursue my two greatest passions: design and motorcycles. It would also provide a platform to carry on a family tradition and give back to the motorcycle community.
