Age: 18

Grew up in the East Bay Hills - Oakland, CA

Years Skating: 8


I skateboard about everyday. 

In the racing world I am known as the “come-up kid” – you know, the new one on the racing scene, but with decent results.  When I’m not skateboarding or traveling I’m probably hanging out with my family or enjoying a fresh pastry at the bakery.

I want to spark interest about skateboarding in people and spread the love of skating.

In addition to my love of skating, I try to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) because they do a lot of work to help out kids and families with type 1 diabetes.  They work around the world making a diabetic and their families' lives less stressful, including my family and me.  I have been a type 1 diabetic for 13 years.

I am a happy guy, always looking to have a good time and focus on the positive side of things.  Skateboarding has given me more than I can ever repay it.

Skate for life.
