Surfer

Surfing will always be a driving force in my life. I love how surfing makes me feel, physically and mentally, and I love sharing my passion for the sport with others. Even when there are other surfers in the lineup, surfing gives me a sense of solitude that allows for spiritual healing and growth; it has helped get me through many rough times in my life and led to some of the best times in my life. I don't think I will ever stop surfing.

My passion for surfing stems from my childhood. I was fortunate enough to grow up in Pacific Beach, a lovely community just north of downtown San Diego, California. My parents instilled a love for the water in me at a young age, and some of my earliest memories are swimming in the shorebreak at Scripps Pier. I started bodyboarding regularly with my friend Drew in second grade during weekend trips to Del Mar with his dad. Soon enough, we began teaching ourselves how to stand up, the bodyboards disappeared, and we focused only on surfing.

My travels have taken me a lot of places and given me an opportunity to ride some of the world's best waves: Black's Beach in San Diego, Grajagan (Gland) in Indonesia, Raglan in New Zealand, Rincon in Santa Barbara, Playa Hermosa in Costa Rica, Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii, Padang Padang in Bali, and hundreds of other spots.

Surfing isn't a hobby, it's a lifestyle. Swell maps, tide charts, board repairs, surf trips. I am constantly trying to take my surfing to the next level, whether it's searching for bigger waves, taking off just a little bit deeper, or hitting the lip just that much harder.

I am always interested in discussing surf-related opportunities, so please contact me and make sure to check out My Surfing gallery.
