I LOVE TO SKATEBOARD, you may say that it’s my addiction in life. Got into freestyle skating after watching Masahiro Fuji’s m80 crossover video, it blew my mind. Another skater that I admire is AJ Kohn he’s amazing on and off the board. Besides skating I also love to read books mostly macabre, grim and ghastly stuff like the writings of the American author Edger Allen Poe, talk about creepy. Although I currently don’t have any sponsors if I did it would probably be something like Seaside Graveyard Clothing, Morgue Wheels and Bang Bros Trucks.

I am currently attending Douglass College and hope to graduate in June. I work as a security supervisor and first aid attendant dealing with injuries and crackheads.

My hobbies include video games, Star Wars, Guitar Hero, cooking, the occult and art, in fact give me a blank canvas and some paint and my creative juices really come to life. My art is inspired by the contemporary artist Ed Templeton who is also a pro skateboarder and owner of the Toy Machine skateboard company.

I feel very lucky that my family totally supports my passion for skating. Looking forward to skating with some old friends at this years Round-Up and of course meeting Rodney Mullen.
