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

Playing THPS2 got me fascinated with skateboarding but witnessing people actually doing it in my hometown made me want to learn. I’d say I discovered my talent when I was 14 because that’s when the progression started.


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

As soon as I started skateboarding the only thing I wanted was to be a professional skater. That’s still my goal.


Who was your biggest inspiration?

The biggest inspiration would have to be my mom, she raised four kids on her own and that takes a strong woman to do that.

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

The homies I skate with help me progress, we all feed off and learn from each other.


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

Getting sober was my greatest achievement cause if I didn’t do that I wouldn’t have been able to start a career and be where I’m at today.


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

Still skating, having fun and hopefully have a pro board.

In terms of healthy habits, what are your thoughts on the current beverage options out there? 

Drinks these days taste good but are super unhealthy and full of sugar. I usually tend to go with energy drinks but they always make me crash so I’m over putting those types of drink in my body. 


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

Wize fits my current lifestyle because I’m at the point that I should watch what I’m putting into my body. Finding a healthier caffeinated drink is that first step and it’s Wize.


What are the next projects coming down the pipeline? 

Next project for myself is to just start filming so I can put out another video part and to start stacking some photos.

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

My favourite flavour would be the grapefruit but I’m down with the other flavours too. I’ll usually drink one on the session to wake the body and mind up.
