Background

Was born in Santa Cruz, California I started skating when I was 4 years old at Derby skatepark...In 1994 I moved to France and grew up skating Paris. When I returned to the states in 2001 I was sponsored by Santa Cruz skateboards, Ricta wheels, Independent Trucks and Vans. Then in 2006 during the filming of a skate video, I launched a boneless 360 wrong and crashed badly, fracturing several vertebrae in my back and paralyzing myself from the waist down as a result...

Shortly after getting out of the hospital, I set out to adapt my skating to my new life in a wheelchair. With the help of my friends and sponsors we modified my wheelchair so that I could continue to do what I love...Since my first drop-in back in 06 it has been a whirlwind of a ride and i've had the opportunity to chair skate all over the world and empower other kids in wheelchairs to push their own limits. I'm blessed to be able to have the opportunity to continue to do what I love and share the stoke...I never forget this!
