Born February 7, 1976 in Quincy IL. I’ve been on two wheels all my life. I helped my dad tear down my first Harley at age 7. I Bought my first street bike in the back of a body shop for $400 at the age of fifteen. Graduated from High school in 1994 and then went on to work in the factories and local bike shops for a few years. It didn’t take long to realize that the factory life wasn’t for me. I needed to get my shit together and went to the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Phoenix AZ in 1998 to get a degree in Harley Davidson. While at MMI I worked at Western Honda in Scottsdale AZ for two Years, and graduated at the top off my class from MMI. I then found myself back in Decatur IL. at Coziahr Harley Davidson. While at Coziahr I went to Harley Davidson University in 2002 to get my masters in Harley Davidson. From Coziahr I ended up back in Quincy working at Easyriders in 2003. At Easyriders we built customs and worked on Big Dog motorcycles. While at Easyriders I went to Big Dog School in Wichita KS. Finally at the end of the year in 2005 I opened Mean Street Customs. Thirteen years later we are here and I never looked back.
