PLACE OF BIRTH Orlando, Florida
YEARS WAKEBOARDING 18 years on the water/ “Pro” since the early 2000’s
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WAKEBOARDING?
Hang out with my wife and twins! Play the drums, skate mini ramps, water the lawn, surf.
NAME YOUR FAVORITE PLACE WAKEBOARDING HAS TAKEN YOU?
A three day layover in Fiji after shooting in Australia with Body Glove wasn’t bad. Also traveling to the Philippines and Singapore was something I never imagined doing in the name of wakeboarding.
TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU.
I play drums in a band called Young Brother and I’m not ashamed to say that we are actually worth listening to… www.youngbrother.bandcamp.com
WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE MOST PLAYED SONGS IN YOUR PLAYLIST?
Junius Meyvant - Color Decay
Joywave - Tongues
Spoon / Tycho - Inside Out (Tycho Remix)
DO YOU HAVE A PRE-RUN ROUTINE YOU DO BEFORE CONTESTS FOR GOOD LUCK?
No. I’m usually too busy sprinting to the porta potty in a state of panic.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT OF YOUR CAREER?
Being able to support myself doing what I love to do every day of the week. Also, the fact that I get to slide into the driver’s seat of the boat people dream of and call it “mine,” gives me a pretty sweet sense of accomplishment.
IF YOU COULD GIVE SOMEONE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE; WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Do it now while you can, because pretty soon your back is going to hurt…haha!
