BIO » 46 years old, from Redwood City, CA and started skateboarding in 1972. Riding transition since 1976, at "Derby" in Santa Cruz and "The Spillway" in San Mateo, then onto "The Dish" in San Francisco, "Hwy 92 Spillway" in San Mateo and the "Camino Spillway", in Camino, CA. Made my own boards in 1979 & 1980 out of fiberglass. I mainly rolled with Tunnel Boards and Wheels in the 70's. Going back, I had a Bongo Board (balance board) since 1970, then onto Tunnel, Banana, Banzai, Maharaja, Dogtown, Losi and on... I still have my 1976 Tunnel Board. I skate cement parks, bowls, pools, vert, street, luge, slalom, banked slalom, freestyle, last-man-standing & more. Have skated over 100 skateparks in 15 different countries with shredders like: Red, Hawk, Hosoi, Alva, Cardiel, Senn, Hewitt, Merlino, Beach, Chin, Speyer, Ward, Grosso, Choppy, Mihalko, Captain Bouyah, Atchley, Lockwood & on... I am one of the original Burnside builders and spent a lot of my own money on cement in the early years, from 1990-1995. I also worked on Lincoln City with Dreamland Skateparks. I have the deepest "Early Years" Burnside Skatepark video archive in the world, with Burnside Early Years Part I & II (1991-1995). Been competing since 2009 and have podiumed five times. Been on almost every angle of the sport: sponsoring skateboarding competitions & events; judging; announcing; competing; videos; demos; post production; stunt coordination; building parks; skate-camps; playing with my reggae band at skate events & more. I still skate at least 3 days a week and have about 8-10 skate events annually, & about 10 gigs with the band annually. My home park is Mt. Shasta, and it is 12,000 sq. ft., smooth and buttery. Featuring a 9 ft. "open kidney pool" with black lava coping, and I personally buried diamonds in the foundation.
STYLE » Old School power rider with ever-progressive new school lines. I am a heavy power-slide rider, with a bunch of slide variations.
