What is your proudest purchase?
The first time I ever bought my first skateboard, because that’s the first time I fell in love, basically. It’s a purchase that I’m proud of because it’s something I’m passionate about and I’ve been doing it for eight years. Skateboarding means everything for me.

Are you sponsored?
I was at one point for like three months, but now I’m trying to get better.

When it comes to saving up, what do you do?
Well, with skateboarding it’s easy to break a board. You eventually learn more about the board and land right away. I ended up learning how to take care of my board, so I don’t have to get a new one so often. They are like $50 a board. Whenever I get $50, I just put it away for my board.
