"I was born and raised in beautiful, sunny San Diego right above Sunset Cliffs. From a young age I have been active in the ocean doing activities such as body surfing, kayaking, surfing, free diving and scuba. I have surfed all over the west coast of California from San Diego to Santa Cruz. I hope to broaden my horizons in the future and surf all over the world. While I never surfed competitively, I have enjoyed surfing many styles of boards on different waves. Besides having fun, I think the key to surfing is to express yourself by developing your own style."
