I’ve had a love for motorcycles and cars as long as I can remember. I bought my first motorcycle in 2003 and was hooked on the life, the extension of yourself that 2 wheels supported. Precision engineering like no other…mechanics, energy, and motion.
In 2006 I was chosen with little to no knowledge to do a biker build off on ESPN. I had minimal resources, no experience and no shop to call home. Fortunately the industry and teacher found me. A good friend Tako opened his shop doors to me. He let me build, showed me the ropes, and guided and mentored me into a builder while I took on my first competition.
After my build off I worked and continued to learn metal fabrication, aesthetics, mechanics and most importantly…. blood, sweat, burns…. No tears better not your a girl ha! in various car and metal fabrication shops. I was welding part-time at Expert Welding in Pompano when Tako offered me an opportunity to work together again at Game Changer Customs. Of course I jumped at the chance to keep doing what I am passionate about.
My father always taught me to do what you love in life. My Mother always said there are no limitations on what you set your mind to. When your a woman in a male dominated industry you have to always be proving yourself. Yet thats what keeps me on my toes.
I weld, fabricate, sand, prep and I am a student of the industry. I live to learn and that is my drive. I do whatever it takes to restore or build the vehicles and materials that take us there.
