How long have you been skating?
I have been skating for 30 years!

Where are you from and where have you lived?
I’m born and raised in Montreal and have lived in Vancouver for 10 years from 1991 until 2000 then moved back 2 real-city.

What’s one of your fondest memories from your skate lifestyle?
I have lived like a bohemian for ruffly 25 years thanks to the freedom and lively culture that skateboarding has blessed my life with from many travels and great friendships threw the brotherhood!

What else do you enjoy to do off your board?
I truly enjoy nature in it’s true simplicity, bike riding, I love reggae music and music in general and I am a avid Boombox collector.

What plans do you have in your horizon?
My plans for the future are to take 1 day at a time and appreciate the gift of life to the fullest while learning and loving as I grow forward!

Any words of wisdom to all the young skaters reading this?
My advice to the new generation of skateboarders is to have a good time being creative with the culture and try not to get to brainwashed by the hype…remember skateboarding is a beautiful renegade artform that was created by rebellious youth not serious corporations…don’t let the man take your heart and always remember to ride on.
