Born and raised?
When did you start skating?
In 1974 when I was 8 years old I got my first skateboard, I wanted to start surfing and was told to learn to skateboard first. I ended up liking skateboarding more than anything and in 1975 I got got my first issue of Skateboarder Magazine and that's when I decided I wanted to be a pro skater.
My biggest influences were the Dog Town guys, Tony Alva and Jay Adams. I wanted to skate like them.
One of my favroite memories is getting sponsored by Logan Skateboards and getting a "Who's Hot" Interview in Skateboarder Magazine when I was 10 years old. And when I was 11 years old I got on the Original Alva Team, it was all a dream come true.
Most memorable session?
At the El Gato Classic's, getting to skate with all of my childhood heroes.
What are you up to lately?
I go skating everyday.
