BUT BASKETBALL AND TRACK BECAME MY LIFE THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL.
AT 18, I STARTED A SKATEBOARD BRAND WHILE IN COLLEGE.
THEN GRADUATED FROM UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA AT 20.
SIDE NOTE: I MANAGED A MILLION DOLLAR CORPORATE RADIOSHACK STORE FOR 5 YEARS
TO MAKE A LIVING DURING AND AFTER COLLEGE
I WORKED MY DAY JOB BUT AFTER HOURS
I DESIGNED WEBSITES, LOGOS, PACKAGING, CAMPAIGNS,
AND MANAGED SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS FOR GROWING BRANDS
THEN STARTED A MARKETING AGENCY AT 24.
AFTER IT ALL,
I REALIZED EVERYTHING I HAD BEEN WORKING TOWARDS
ON THE TRADITIONAL CAREER PATH
DID NOT MAKE ME HAPPY
I LEFT EVERYTHING I KNEW AND HAD IN FLORIDA,
AND DROVE MY SMALL CAR ACROSS THE COUNTRY
TO PERSUE MY PASSION FOR SKIMBOARDING AND FILMMAKING IN CALIFORNIA.
I MADE THIS JOURNEY SOLO AND
IT WAS THE HARDEST DECISION AND TIME OF MY LIFE.
MY LIFE HAS CHANGED EVER SINCE.
