Hey, Nigel. How is 2015 treating you thus far?
2015 is treating me very well, thank you.

What are you looking forward to most in the remainder of this year?
I’m looking forward to continue building upon the momentum I’ve created thus far between dropping my Vice Sports documentary earlier this year and my most recent G-Shock Unlikely Encounter video a few days ago.

Around a year-and-a-half ago, it was announced that you were working with Pharrell Williams on Brooklyn Machine Works. What’s the latest there?
Yes, Brookyln Machine Works is still on my plate. We had to take it a bit slower than we intended, but it’s still moving forward. We are currently building our AM team and recently released frames in Tokyo at W-Base.
I’ve noticed a few riders repping Pyradice lately. Does Pyradice have a formal team now? If so, who’s on it?
Pyradice is growing as well. You can check out our latest products and happenings at We don’t have an official team, but we are definitely hooking a few riders up and helping them move in the right direction. Shout out to Anthony DeRosa, DeMarcus Paul, and Ikeem Allen.

When can we expect to see another full-length riding video from you?
Currently, I’m working on Ridin With That Work 3. I don’t have a solid date, but I’m aiming for it to be completed by mid-to-late summer.

How’s the New York scene right now?
The NYC scene is cool. New faces are popping up every month it seems. Good to know kids are still getting into BMX. I just hope that the scene can continue growing in size and impact.

Were you able to ride at home at all over the winter?
I wasn’t able to ride NYC this past winter at all. We had a rough one. Snow, raining, and freezing temperatures constantly. I went on a few Cali trips and filmed with Mr. Hicks, a Miami trip to film this Sony Action Cam video, which was an awesome experience, and recently traveled to the Dominican Republic with Ralphy Ramos.

Any up-and-coming riders out there we should look out for?
Anthony DeRosa, DeMarcus Paul, Ikeem Allen.

Any big goals you’re looking to accomplish over the next few years?
My aim is always targeted at continuous progression in every aspect of my life and career. I want to live out my imagination as long as possible.
