PLACE OF BIRTH Palm Beach, Florida
YEARS WAKEBOARDING I started 18 years ago and have been considered a pro for 13 years.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WAKEBOARDING?
Always trying new things/activities. But I enjoy all board sports, including surfing and snowboarding.
NAME YOUR FAVORITE PLACE WAKEBOARDING HAS TAKEN YOU?
I’ve been to a lot of amazing places around the world to wakeboard, but one of the best would have to be Lake Powell in Arizona. I’ve taken many trips there and every time I go, I’m still in amazement over how beautiful and surreal the place is!
TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU.
I’m really good at math, haha.
WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE MOST PLAYED SONGS IN YOUR PLAYLIST?
Kid Cudi - Pursuit To Happiness
Mike Snow - Plastic Jungle
Slightly Stupid - Collin Man
DO YOU HAVE A PRE-RUN ROUTINE YOU DO BEFORE CONTESTS FOR GOOD LUCK?
Not necessarily because every contest is different and you always have to change up your run. Plus, to me, it gets boring if I go out and do the same tricks in a row while riding.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT OF YOUR CAREER?
I’ve had a few accomplishments throughout my career but the one that sticks out the most would have to be winning the U.S. Nationals twice.
IF YOU COULD GIVE SOMEONE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE; WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Enjoy life to the fullest. If you’re not having a good time doing what you’re doing, find a way to change it and have the best time of your life!
