How did you discover your talent? What got you started? 

One day, when I came back from school, at my bus stop, I saw an older guy practicing skateboarding. I was completely amazed. Back home I immediately asked my parents for a skateboard. Since then, after school I practiced my tricks with my brother in the yard and I had a blast.


As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

Maybe a carpenter because I unscrewed all the chairs legs of the kitchen. 


Who was your biggest inspiration?

 Rick McCrank



What makes you keep innovating and pushing your skills to new heights? What’s the intrinsic driver or motivation?

Because I’m really passionate! My motivation is when I got sober.


So far, what has been your favourite highlight of your career? An achievement? A specific moment?

When I did this 5050 in Portugal, it was my biggest battle. Since the day I decided to go to rehab, I've been sober for 7 years now.



In regards to your career, where do you want to be in 5 or 10 years? 

Still skating and having fun! 


In terms of healthy habits, what are your thoughts on the current beverage options out there?  (I.e. Energy Drinks, high sugar drinks etc)



How does Wize fit into your current lifestyle? And why do you choose Wize?

Since I’m sober, I like taking care of myself by taking healthy products like Wize. It’s very important for me to give my body healthful substances.


What are the next projects coming down the pipeline? 

I’m going to Vancouver to start a video part for Empire.


What’s your favourite flavour of Wize tea? When do you typically drink it?

Mango! And I drink it before and during my skate sessions and sometimes, I also drink it after. It’s refreshing!


Thanks for the interview! Where can our audience find out more about you?
