We present the results of a high-resolution radio observation of J0253+3835 at 18cm and 13cm using the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) in August 2003. First observed in September 1999 as a VLBA calibrator, an apparent 90 degree bend in the jet was observed. We present results regarding the proper motion, the spectral index structure, and the flux density evolution of the central engine and the jet structure.
