How is a great normal day looking for you ?

A great day for me would begin with just having a great breakfast in the morning or whenever I wake up. Going skating and maybe learning a trick or two if I’m lucky. Getting in a huge lunch and just relaxing for the rest of the day gaming and winding down.

Tell us how a good long weekend is looking for you

Hanging with my buds skating my heart out.

How was your year 2017 ?

Absolutely amazing. Would totally do it all over again if I could. Got to meet so many of the dudes I look up to at Rumble in Ramona. Even got to skate with Tony Hawk and his crew at the Jackalope Festival in Montreal during the vert demo. Such a hype year and can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store.

Any new projects you got going you wanna talk about ?

None at the moment.

Do you read books ? if so, what do you read ?

Mostly mags and reading about new up coming shredders.

Who are you hanging out with at the moment ?

My bud Nick. We skate all the time together.

Tell us about the great crew you are bringing to the session next time…

We don’t have a huge vert crew but it’s definitley a solid one. I’ll be bringing canadian ripper Roger Blinoff, Nick Dekort and up and coming killer Richie Bullbrooke.

Who and what is your motivation at the moment ?

JIMMY WILKINS…Then again isn’t he everyone’s motivation right now. He motivates me to try attaining a higher level of finesse with my skating.

What are you planing for 2018 ?

FIRE PART. Since I never really have released a full length proper part.

What else is going on ?

Just excited for my trip down to Cali in February for the month.

What do you do besides skateboarding ?

Game alot lol. When I’m not falling from the rafters on a vert ramp I like to curl up on the couch and game.

What is your to go to resturants ?

I mean there’s not to many resturants in my area per say but of them I’d say my fave is PIZZA PIZZA. Nothing like a fresh Pizza where the cheese is melted just right and is covered is toppings.

Whats your top 3 favorite meals ?

Definitley a good pizza for one and for a second just Five Guys anything. Can’t really think of a third.

Whats your top 3 favorite drinks ?

Strawberry Fruitopia, 7 up and just a good ol ice cold water.

How do you see the future of skateboarding ?

I see it being alot more structured with the Olympics and all. It will bring places that don’t have big skate scenes into the bigger picture. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out!

Do you you have other hobbys besides skateboarding ?


Who do we need to interview on the lodge ?


Christmas is here, Do you have any christmas wishes ?

Just that I don’t get wreckt before Cali and that everyone has a happy Christmas.

Tell us a slippery story.

Wish I could think of one.


Thanks for having me on the shredderslodge. I don’t get the chance to do many interviews so this is sick!!!

Last words ? Peace out everyone have a awesome Christmas!!!!!!
