How did I get here? From being a kid on a skateboard, doing it for the love of the sport, to being a man with paying sponsors, to the Dew Tour, to becoming a motivational speaker and author. My life a whirlwind of plane rides, hotels, contests, my love life, good times, bad times, lots of money, no money. How were these things cultivated from nothing more than luck, a wooden board, and four spinning wheels? That question would unveil itself slowly as I looked inward to examine my life to this point: from the tragic loss of my mother—which was an unbelievable low—to this proud moment of being in the spotlight. From my experiences as a child actor that morphed to my time in a band and ultimately led to my discovery of skateboarding; all these elements that seemed unrelated, but blended together and became the critical experiences that made up my life, my career, my nucleus.
