Shock Mansion: G’day mate, thanks for your time! Let’s get stuck straight into it for all the Aussie’s out there, what’s a typical day in the life like for you?
J-Beats: A typical day, wake, eat oatmeal with jelly, after that stretch, check my email, browse the web, check on my puppies and dogs, I have 4. Clean up puppy and dog shit. After that run for about 5 miles, I am competing now so in order to be an athlete I need to train like an athlete. When I get back I shower up and I’m off to the Famous Stars and Straps warehouse to practice. Then back to the casa to eat something and clean up more dog shit, then off to the gym.

J-Beats: I have never been to Australia, but would love to go. So as soon as something comes up let me know.
Shock Mansion: What were you doing to put food on the table before your riding career really took off?

Shock Mansion: You are heavily covered in tattoos, what got you started?
J-Beats: Actually my boy from high school Mr. Sergio Vazquez, his uncle Baby gave me my first tattoo prison style with a Bic Pen with a needle and battery. It was so slow you could see the needle move. It was an experience I would never forget and I don’t want to forget. That is what lead me to love the finer arts of tattooing and I never stopped.
