How old are you?
I’m from Texas, but I live in Colorado.

Any nicknames?
Not that I can think of…

Sponsors?
Tron, Foundation, Volcom, Vans, and 303 boards.

How did you get hooked up on Foundation?
Tony Silva hooked that shit right the fuck up.

Who do you shred with usually?
All my friends from Colorado, like the 1086 crew.

How gnarly was Shanghai skatepark?
That place sucked—psyche! It was so fun, minus the fact that they made it in the middle of nowhere.

What was the sickest thing you saw go down?
Tony did a Primo stall on flat and a pressure flip, too.

Any funny Phelper stories on the trip?
Everywhere we went he did some thing really funny, like when he took this hat from a cop at the park and the cop didn’t do a damn thing.

You got Bad Shit on your iPod?
No, but will you send me some?
