What got you into freestyle instead of street or vert?

My mom got former Walker pro freestyle skater Reggie Barnes (owner of Endless Grind Skateboard Shop and Eastern Skateboard Supply) to do a demo at my cousins school in 1987. I had never seen anyone skate like that. Reggie was doing handstands and spining 360's. So after the demo I got to meet Reggie and I asked him "What do you do with your old skateboards" and Reggie said that he either throws them away or gives them away. So being so young at the time and not knowing any better, I asked for his board. After a few weeks he gave me that very same board he did the demo with and even signed it. So you could say that if it were not for Reggie Barnes I would not be where I am today.

What do you like to do when you are not skating: Work out, cook, hang out with my love Bonnie
