How did you get your nickname?
I teach Concealed Carry Classes and someone in the Shrine tagged me with that name. As nicknames go, if you hear one you like, you damn sure better get a name tag asap!!! .... or you end us with something like Crayon or Snowflake.... or even worse Sticky Honeybuns.... wow.
How many years have you been a Roughrider?
Since about 2013. I was briefly a RR in 2001 (about 1 month) You didn't need to prospect back then, guess I bought a shirt and helped a little. The group was much different back then and wasn't for me.
What do you enjoy most about being a Roughrider?
I love helping out the community and being involved with our donations. However, Its the friendships... these guys started out as just some people to ride with, to buddies and now my best friends and family.
Who was your Roughrider sponsor and how did you meet?
Radar Love... we are both Shriners and he didn't have a prospect. Mav was the first one I talked with about joining. I had done a RR concealed carry course in 2012 that Mav sponsored. I'm glad it all worked out.
Besides riding motorcycles, what other hobbies do you have?
Teaching CHP classes, but mostly, spending time with my girl(s) and their activities.
