How were you introduced to skateboarding? What got you started?

 

My brother, Sergio, and I were trying out different sports and skateboarding was the only one that stuck. I was into inlining when I was a youngie and that just got lame so I hopped on a skateboard!

 

What was your first set up?

 

Element Reese Frobes deck, Mini Logo bearings, Destructo trucks and Spitfire wheels.

 

What is the best and worst thing about your hometown?

 

Best part is that we have the best skateshop and skatepark in Jersey. Worst part is that, unlike Cali, it actually snows and gets really cold in the winters. So skating in the winter is a rough.

Hang out with friends and go to NYC.
