"I was born and raised here in sunny San Diego and i believe it is an amazing place to be. I have always been an extremely active person ever since i can remember. I grew up in love with both the ocean and land equally. My childhood consisted of dirt biking, skateboarding, inline roller blading, horseback riding and whenever i got the chance, bodysurfing or boogie boarding. When i got my first surfboard i was so excited to jump in the water. That first wave that i caught (about 3 and a half years ago now) was the true start, i was hooked and was determined to hold onto the sport and feeling of flying down the face forever. I was injured a little over a year ago unfortunately and was unable to get in the water for what felt like forever. I am back now, good as new and i am ready to share my love and passion for the board and water with everyone."
