I started out skating in Los Lunas New Mexico 8 years ago when I was 14, later that year I did my first race in Albuquerque. There I met the Timeship crew and sick racers like the Rogers brothers and Jimmy Z. Joe Lehm and Will Brunson were stoked to see me skating and took me under their wing showing me how to tuck be fast and be smart. I met Rob Palmer at the same race and he showed me the ropes of pool skating and ditch skating and how to be more gnarly then safe. Skating in New Mexico is amazing because we skate everything down here, and I soon found myself rolling to slalom races, slide fests, and downhill events.
I took a couple years off to do hard drugs, got clean and came back to the skate family. I moved to Oregon and started making boards for Longboard Larry. That was a lot of fun and a great experience but it wasn't working out for me, and after riding for him for 7 years and working 2, Larry pushed me to ride for a bigger company, like Rayne Longboards.
Now I'm back in my home state hiding from the Northwest winter and working for Timeship Racing. I'm riding for Rayne Longboards, RipCity Skate, Timeship Racing, and Divine and getting a lot of the support you didn't find in the sport a couple years ago. Nothing in life has made me happier then being on a board with wheels, and I can't wait to see what other awesome moments life and skateboarding has in store for me.
