“Be humble, stay positive, and go make it happen for yourself.””

Where are you from? Where do you live now?

I’m from a little zone in San Diego called Solana Beach. I currently live off Tamarack in Carlsbad.

What do you have for breakfast in the morning?

At least half the pot of coffee. Yikes

What words / motto / advice do you live by?

No one’s entitled to anything. Be humble, stay positive, and go make it happen for yourself.

What one or two things do you currently do in your training that are keys to your success?

I swim and practice breathing exercises regularly in an attempt to keep my cardio and endurance as strong as possible for surf. Staying as active as I can and maintaining a strong focus, across all fields (surf or camera play), is key for me.

If someone wanted to start learning your craft, how do you recommend they get started? Resources?

Application. Nothing comes easy without properly applying yourself to what it is you’re striving for. Hop on youtube, learn as much as possible, and put that knowledge to the test!

Who do you look up to in your profession and why?

I don’t think I can pick one, as I’m inspired by multiple different people for many different reasons. Not to jump on the band wagon, and he’s not really relevant to my profession, but one guy that does stand out as a huge inspiration to me is Mr. Gary V. The guy pushes the limits and makes no excuses. It’s extremely motivational.

Favorite music / podcasts / shows / games / books?

Those low tempo, jazzy instrumentals. That’s what I like to listen to haha.
Gary V podcasts if any.
I don’t watch TV, nor do I play games. I reallyyyyy wish I could say I read, but…

What events do you attend (concerts, sporting events, festivals, charity and volunteer work, etc.)?

I don’t attend a ton of events, but when I do, it’s likely something in the action sports scene (outside of Coachella and CRSSD).
