Executive Director & Marketing Manager
Henry “Rick” White
I've always seen the BMX industry in a different light than most of my friends, rather than accepting the situation for what it is, I longed to provide more for my community. My service in the U.S. Navy as a Helicopter Aircrewman, Rescue Swimmer, High-Risk training Instructor, Helicopter Mechanic, Lifeguard, Training Coordinator, and Facility Manager have given me valuable insight to managing risk while being to be risky. After Graduating from ASU with a Bachelors in Community Sports Management, I began working at Intel full-time to expand my knowledge in the technical industry. My work with the Arizona Parks and Recreation Fellowship exposed me to coordinating vendors for the states largest fireworks display while raising over $10,000 for scholarships and grants in the Parks and Recreation degree field.
I ride BMX as an outlet, as a veteran I recognize the need to be outdoors and physically active. My goal is to advocate for community driven BMX growth through events, and expansion of parks to facilitate progressive riding to avoid unnecessary injuries.
