In 1998 "the Wild Child" was born and since then I have had the privelege of performing one of the most spectacular acts in professional rodeo. Late in 1999 I was lucky enough to have met Cotton Rosser, a stock contractor from Marysville California, known as the King of rodeo. As I teamed up with Cotton and his Flying U Rodeo Company, I was invited to perform at some of the biggest rodeos in north America and Canada during the 2000 season. Such as the Calgary Stampede, the Red Bluff Round up and the California State Fair, just to name a few.
Since those early days as 'The Wild Child' I have performed in front of more than 1 Million spectators, on national and international TV, and last but certainly not least; the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Wild Child's personal Stuff. . . .
I was born and raised in Payson Utah, where I still reside when I am not on the road. My father Lynn, a team roper and my mother Penny an ex- rodeo queen, gave me my first horse when I was four years old. By the age of ten I started riding motorcycles. Within two years I entered my first motorcycle race. Six years later I was number one in the State of Utah in professional motor cross. In 1992 I started my business "Downhill Cyclery" a mountain bike retail and service shop in Payson, two years later I decided to try my luck at Bullfighting and the rest is history.....
