“I’m really not someone to sit still and I am constantly thinking of the “what’s next””

Where are you from? Where do you live now?

I am from San Diego, California and spend my time living between Los Angeles and San Diego.
I grew up surfing so that’s why I try to keep at least one foot in SD as long as I can, ha.

What do you have for breakfast in the morning?

My morning breakfasts on a normal day at home usually consist of way too much coffee and a side of avocado toast and egg.

What words / motto / advice do you live by?

You can either make something happen, watch something happen or wonder what the heck happened. My life is full of making decisions that impact and set myself up for success.
I’m really not someone to sit still and I am constantly thinking of the “what’s next”.

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

Progressing is something that I am always striving for. Everyday I work on my crafts. Whether I am learning a new animation in After Effects or a new trick on my skateboard.
I believe working on something everyday will in no doubt come success.

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

I think for someone learning my craft, they need to understand that nothing comes easy. This lifestyle I live and the work that comes from it has been a lead up of thousands of hours of picking up the camera and just shooting. The more you work on photography the better you get. You also must truly have a passion for what you’re doing and with that your work will reflect your love for it.

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

A huge influence to me is director and influencer Casey McPerry. Casey is an all around epic human and amazing artist. His work is innovative and constantly changing.
For my work, Casey has really showed me to think outside the box and not to set into trends, but to create them instead.

Favorite music / podcasts / shows / games / books?

I like to think I’m a pretty diverse human so my range of music goes from old school rock, EDM to Hip-hop.
Favorite show hands down would have to be Shameless. Books…what’s a book? Ha.

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

I am a huge music and action sports enthusiast so I am constantly headed to new events weekly.
Whether it be Coachella or a AMA Supercross race there’s a good chance you’ll run into me!
