When did you start skating? 4 years old

What are some of your earliest/ favorite memories of skateboarding? My Dad helping me skate. He would hold my hand and catch me when I needed it. He would encourage me and tell me I'm brave and tell me to never give up.

What are some of your favorite or most memorable sessions from the last few years? Working on my Exposure clips was fun and a lot of work. There was a lot of blood, sweat and tears but in the end I was so happy with the results and what I accomplished!

What have you been up to lately? Homeschool and skateboarding! I've also been doing a lot of auditions too. My most recent one I booked was a commercial for an eyewear company.

What’s in store for 2022?  Hoping to learn more tricks and get better at the ones I know. There's always room to learn more! I'm also hoping to book more commercials. I love doing that, it's so much fun! I've been blessed, skateboarding opened a lot of doors for me especially with traveling and meeting new people and friends.
