“I started to get interested in RC cars in eighth grade and that pulled me into mechanics. I started to realize a lot of what I applied to fixing the little cars was the same on the big ones, with a large price difference of course, but I started to like off road capabilities on the radio control. It pulled me into the off-road world, which wouldn’t be as big as it is without Jeeps, and so I just kinda fell in love with Jeeps. I do a lot of off-roading; it’s fun to test what you’ve made. You don’t spend a bunch of time building a kite to never fly it, you put hours into wrenching on the jeep and see what it can do on the trails.”
