Meet the Twisted Crew


Erik S.

Erik, a.k.a. Mr. Twisted, is the founder of this asylum and keeps the place running like a well oiled machine (don't ask what type of machine...)! Of the many Twisted Bikes, Erik's favored trackday toy is the 2012 Triumph Street Triple R. After graduating from the University of Delaware Erik quickly learned that moonlighting as a trombone player in a rock and jazz band while consulting for a law firm just wasn’t the life for him. Apparently you can't wear race leathers to a board meeting without co-workers nicknaming you “the Terminator."”Trading in the 5 wheels on his corporate office chair for 2, Erik has now been able to ride on every continent on Earth with the exception of Antarctica (possible?). With adventures like that under his belt, “Mr Twisted” knows what we sell and how it works in all sorts of riding conditions.

Twisted since June 2002




Nick S.

Nick is our company beserker and the guy who keeps the orders flowing to the warehouse. When he is not wrestling computers, he can be heard rumbling through the countryside on his HD Sportster or Pontiac TransAm.

Twisted since August 2006





Even though Dereck is no longer with us, “Chappy” will always be part of the Twisted crew... Always.

Twisted since January 2008




David P. 

David is a full-time father, husband and outdoors enthusiast extraordinaire. When he's not teaching Viking combat or pirate reenacting he might be feeding his chickens or enjoying family time on the archery/axe-throwing range at home.

With 20+ years in Purchasing and Retail Management in the sport optics and print media industries, David has turned his passion loose on adventure motorcycling and can be spotted riding his Kawasaki KLR650A, 1973 Honda CL175 dirt-tracker or GSX-R 750. Next Bike? Ural with plenty of room for a musket and a deer!

Twisted since April 2008




Nate B. 

Nate is our in-house product designer from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Master of all things metal, as well as doing crafty graphic illustrations and catalog creation, Nate is a chronic Jeep modifier and is learning to speak German so he can play nice with our European suppliers. Nate's current ride is a Suzuki DRZ400SM supermoto. Since purchase, he's built more new toys for that bike than any other. We think he's biased.

Twisted since June 2008




Greg G. 

Greg grew up on dirt bikes, ATV's and all other things motorized! He joined Twisted Throttle in 2010 as a shipper in the warehouse, moved to customer service, then on to working in our Product Development department as he completed his engineering degree.

Do you like the bike-specific Denali light mount on your motorcycle? Chances are good that Greg designed, fabricated the prototype, and test-fitted the part before it ever arrived in the FedEx truck. 

Twisted since February 2010





Chris A. 

Chris answers all things technical and is your order taking mastermind. He is a guru of all things motorcycle.

He spends spare time trying to make his DRZ400 fly. Other favorite toys include a Harley TL1000, V Star, YZ and the list goes on...this guy REALLY loves to ride.

Since May 2011





Justin P. 

“J.P.” is our mad man in the warehouse! This guy started out packing boxes and now he manages the place. Goes to show:  Do something really well for a long time and people start to notice! And even offer a reward or two.

Not only did JP move up the ladder, he's been instrumental in getting our warehouse running on state-of-the-art inventory management tools that should speed shipping and make his already immaculate inventory control just that much better. 

Twisted since July 2011





Dave P.

With 13 years of dealer experience in service and parts departments, Dave is our Service Manager. At age 13, Dave started on a '79 Honda 250, which was only the beginning of his relationship with 2-wheelers, both off-road and street. Oh yeah, and there was some roadracing mixed in. He'll ride any bike that has the key left in it, but don't worry, he'll fill the tank before bringing it back! What is his dream bike you ask? The Batpod of course!

Twisted since February 2013

 Colin P



Colin P.

Colin rode in from the wonderful world of dairy cows to ship farkles to riders around the world. He has been riding dirt, track and street bikes since he was seven and his current herd includes an '02 Honda CBR600F4i and a '14 Honda CRF250L. We have dubbed him Spiderman both for his love of the creepy crawlers and the way he can ride his CRF just about anywhere.

Twisted since May 2015




Keith G.

Keith is our intimidating Beard-O... that is until he cracks a grin. He has been riding since he was a mere 12 (presumably with a full beard then too) with an affinity for MX/Touring/Dual Sport bikes. One time, at bike camp, he saw a Superman cape in the middle of the road, picked it up with his foot and wore it for three straight days.

Keith is one of our customer service experts.

He has Type-O Negative blood. (Random fact alert.)

Twisted since October 2015

 Brendan Yag




Brendan has all the tricks. This guy started riding as a wee lad. During his tenure in SLC for college he became a sick stunt rider in the midst of some super hard studying. At the time being, he rides a Victory Magnum and a Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R, but dreams of moving on up to something "outrageous and custom". Brendan comes to our customer service department with a long history in the Trade Show world. So basically, he knows all the things. 

He has two golden retrievers that are probably pretty cute. 


Twisted since October 2015

Vanessa P 




Vanessa started as our very organized shipper/receiver, and now coordinates purchasing and order fulfillment logistics. She also compiles excellent & detailed notes that make all our lives easier and helps the shipping department run like a well-oiled machine. She is an OCT (Ontario Certified Teacher) and whips up all kinds of beautiful homemade hair accessories and cards. She currently rides an TTR125L.

Since June 2016





Glen B.

Glen is a silent storm in the warehouse. 

He is the king of assembling parts that go with other parts so that you get a package that you didn't even know used to be in pieces. 

He rides a Victory Kingpin like a boss with the presence of Pitbull the rapper... until you hear him talk and he's just really the nicest guy. Like ever. Glen says he has no interesting stories about him to tell. We don't believe him for a second...

Twisted since June 2016




Phil D.

Phil is an MOFW (man of few words) but a fan of colorful t-shirt slogans. When not roaming our warehouse looking for mysteriously stacked motorcycle parts, he enjoys reading, playing games, and watching movies. He would not elaborate which. No, he would not.

Twisted since October 2016




Marisa M.

Our hardworking Gear Scout turned Web Merch guru has been riding motorcycles nearly her whole life, starting on dirtbikes as a kid and eventually progressing to the street. Marisa has competed in a variety of off-road racing events and enjoys long distance motorcycle travel. 

She's an Orange-Kool-Aid-drinkin', high-octane-sniffin', adventure-seekin', gravel-roostin' kinda gal!

Things we don't know about her? She has an adorable cat named Duke (yes, after the KTM)... Of course.

Twisted since November 2016




Josh S.

Despite having baked an excessive amount of bread for multiple bakeries and having chased anomalous phone system issues while working IT at a large Avaya reseller, Josh embraces every day with a unique quizzical joy.

When not helping us transition our extensive software suites, Josh troubleshoots for the web-content team and contributes his love of process control and "maths" to the purchasing department. Is there anything Josh doesn't do here at Twisted? Ironically, yes...bake.

Twisted since December 2016





Ron S.

Our Dealer Sales Manager is not only a drummer in a promising local band and a fan of Clown Loaches but he's also an avid motorcyclist with a weakness for European machinery.

With a rare 1994 Ducati 900CR and 2016 Moto Guzzi Griso, Ron's garage is never without character. (Or an oil stain.) His Triumph Bonneville should help keep things in order.

Ron joins us after 25 years in wholesale paint and hardware distribution.

Twisted since December 2016




John E.

John is one of our hard working Purchasing guys. “I started riding at the age of 6, and have been going since. That’s a little over 40 years of life on two wheels. In that time, the stable has included mounts from Yamaha, Kawasaki, Can-Am, Rokon, Triumph, and Ducati, with my latest ride an ST4S.” John's done numerous track days and raced hare-scrambles, dirt drags, motocross, and hill climbs.

Before joining Twisted Distributing, John was the General Manager of the Hard Rock Cafe and Retail Store in Foxwoods Casino, the largest casino in North America. “The move to Twisted offers me an exciting opportunity to combine my profession with my lifelong passion for motorcycling.”

Twisted since December 2016

Keith R 



Keith R. 

Keith R. is super tall. He's super awesome. An Eagle Scout, he always helps whenever and wherever there's a need. He grows a mean beard too.

Since April 2017

Gerrard M 



Gerrard M. 

Gerrard M started in the warehouse, then migrated to our customer service and tech support team. During his free time, he enjoys camping, hiking, checking out cars and chilling with his trusty sidekick (an adorable beagle). If you're a gamer, watch out...his alter ego slays newbs left and right.

Since June 2017



Antony D.

Antony is responsible for French Canadian support and Export Dealer Sales for Twisted Distributing. Born in France, Antony spent his first 30 years living in the French Pyrenees in the southwest region of the country. The Pyrenees mountains link the Atlantic to the Mediterranean along the border with Spain. 

Before moving to the U.S., he had a 2002 Yamaha FZ1. 

“Coming to the U.S. and working for Twisted Throttle gives me the opportunity to merge my love of motorcycles with a career at one of America's leading distributors.” 

We're trying to get Antony to teach us how to cuss in French, but he's too much of a gentleman to do so. Merde!
