I’m an average guy from Appleton, Wisconsin who loves authentic tacos and scotch immediately after motorcycling. In 2014 I purchased my first ride, a 1997 Kawasaki KLR650. It served quite well as a first ride to learn with (this includes a couple fun, harmless lowside crashes), and allowed me to embark on an amazing and forever memorable journey from Wisconsin to Alaska with my cousin in 2016. It was a fun-filled yet personal adventure for us to return our Alaskan Native grandmother’s ashes to her birthplace of Mary’s Igloo, Alaska. The trip taught me a lot about perseverance and keeping one’s momentum in life forward, but I had realized off-roading just wasn’t a facet of riding I had much patience for. Due to this, I purchased a 2016 Triumph Bonneville T100 in 2017, and it currently serves as my means of road therapy, moto-camping excursions, and the impetus to combine my enjoyment of photography and writing under the Eskimotorrad name. The name is a combination of my 1/4 Alaskan Native (Inuit/Eskimo) and German (motorrad = “motorcycle”) heritage. Over the years I have also done quite a bit of graphic and website design, and playing guitar/writing music. However, motorcycling has definitely taken over my focus the last few years!

You can also follow me on YouTube where I create riding/moto-camping videos, and Instagram.
