1. Best part about where you live?

Long Island is sweet, the beach is 5 minutes away, there’s a really fun park 15 minutes away and NYC is only an hour away by train or car.

2. What’s your daily routine like?

Everyday is different, right now I go to school or work and ride in my free time. In the summer I wake up late, relax for a couple of hours, go online check my email, FB, Twitter and etc. Then I go meet up with my friends, ride for a few hours, come home and usually end up being really late to a party.

3. Upside of being a pro bike rider?

I’m looking forward to traveling to new places and meeting new people.

Downside of being a pro bike rider?

Getting hurt and not being able to ride is probably the worst.

4. What do you see yourself doing after riding?

I’d like to work in the BMX industry. Also do some photography here and there.

5. Magazines or the world wide web and why?

I use the web everyday and it definitely makes everything easier and more accessible but magazines are timeless.

6. Best story that you could tell us that happened to you this year?

Nothing too crazy but last November I went to visit my sister in California for the first time. While I was there, I went to some skate parks and a lot of the kid’s knew me there from seeing some videos I posted online awhile ago. I was really surprised that kids from across the country knew who I was.

7. The ultimate spot you’ve ridden?

New York City is awesome and definitely is my favorite place to ride street. Woodward was one of the best places I have ever been, it has everything that you could imagine all in one place.

8. What do you do besides ride?

I’m always working on or thinking of new ideas for Follow The Leader, hanging out with my friends or doing computer stuff.

9. Favorite picture that has been shot of you on your bike and why?

I did this 180 bar down a set at Foley Square in NYC 2 winters ago that Jon Nemecek shot, the colors and the courthouse in the background make it look pretty cool.

10. Last words?

Thanks!
