I’ve been competing on the pro tour since 2007. I got 3rd place overall in 2013 on the PWT, 3rd Place overall on the World Series in 2014 and 2013, and 2nd place at Worlds in 2011. I’m in the fast lane from LA to Tokyo.
What are you looking for to accomplish?
I want to hit a 1080 this year, as well as add a few of my own unique tricks to my run.
What would be your greatest achievement?
Either winning worlds in wakeskating, or Finishing Runner Up in Wakeboarding, or Finishing in 3rd overall on the Pro Wakeboard Tour.
What kind of difficulties does your sport’s performance involve?
Getting access to $110,000 boats can definitely be difficult. It takes time and dedication.
What makes you feel satisfied when performing your sport?
I love learning new tricks, it’s such an awesome feeling. I also love sticking my run perfectly.
Where do you practice your techniques when being alone?
On my home lake in Orlando, FL called Clear Lake.
What do you do during your training which is key to your success?
I try and surround myself with positive people who motivate and encourage me.
What are you most nervous about when competing?
Just knowing that you can’t fall at all or its over can make anyone nervous.
Who would you say is your biggest fan and why?
I’m going to say my family, especially my parents. They’re super positive and encouraging and I wouldn’t be here without them.
What are your future plans?
After wakeboarding I plan on continuing to buy houses and rent them out. I actually really enjoy doing that.
What are your tips for those who begin now?
Don’t do it for the money or the glory, do it cause it’s fun and you love it. If you get good enough at anything, someone will pay you to do it eventually. Work on yourself first.
