How did this passion start?
A: Well, it’s not exactly some awe-inspiring, oh-so spectacular story, I just rode a roller coaster and liked it. I’d probably credit my excitement for coasters to Viper at Six Flags Magic Mountain. That was my first legit roller coaster besides California Screamin’ at Disney’s California Adventure, and it was great. When I rode X2 at the same Six Flags later that same year, that solidified what I wanted to do.

What have you done lately to support your goals or business?
A: Travel. Lots of travel. It seems like that’s all I do anymore. Just in the past 3 months, I’ve been to Minnesota, Missouri, Florida, Utah, Maine, and New Jersey, all for roller coasters. When I go on these trips, I ride and review the “coasters” for our social media platforms online, and that’s where I make the money.

What is your end goal?
A: To own a theme park. Plain and simple.
