When You’re Not Riding: Surfing, teaching wakeboarding, photography, planning trips, and hanging out with my wife and friends

Music for Your Ears: Hip hop and rock
Future Goals: Keep doing what I love, set up a wake school in the Jupiter/Palm Beach area, and be a good husband
Favorite Place to Ride: Over the past few years, I’ve gone wakeboarding in about 20 different countries, so at this point it’s too hard to pick just one. Each place has been unique and has provided wonderful memories. With that being said, it is really nice just riding at home every once in a while.
Your Perfect Day: Wake up early and eat breakfast, head out on the boat with some friends, grab some lunch and make our way to the beach for a surf session, and finally enjoy some sushi with my wife as we watch the sun dip below the horizon.
5 things you can’t live without: Family, friends, my wakeboard, my boat, and the ocean
