Fool grew up on a skateboard, the slopes of the Rocky Mountains, and a Harley. Caring more about riding boards and bikes led to failure to graduate high school. The solid realization came that in order to impress babes bitchin skills on boards and bikes would not suffice. Two options were available, swing a hammer or draw. Being a hammer jockey was not in the cards. A job opening in the web department at Fox Motocross became available. It sounded interesting. Thus began a fifteen year career in design.
