Top 5 things about living in the Razors house?
– Most amazing view of the pacific ocean from the house. Truly an inspiration to myself and all who have been blessed to get the chance to chill , rage , party whatever and wake up to the view of the La Costa Lagoon.
– It’s location is really amazing for skating being so centrally located. It’s like only an hour away from LA and San Diego 30 minutes south. Both amazing meccas for street skating with endless spots.
– There’s been a constant flow of some of the world’s best freestyle inline guys over the last two years while I’ve been living here, giving me a unique opportunity to be influential with the filming of a lot of the more recent projects you’ve seen from Razors and Ground Control.
– Being able to promote my vision of freestyle inline through street skating, Edits blending urban fusion styles of music and fashion all in one on regular basis.
– I’ve been able to be closer to my dad and his side if the family because my father is from LA originally. He and my uncle ironically were the ones that got me into skating in the first place so it’s cool to be out here living and skating.
