Top 3 eyeball stories?
When I was a kid in elementary school, I lost my eye in the snow. I cried. Then my brother found it and wouldn’t give it back. Jerks, man! Chasing it around the kitchen floor at one of my first parties at the Zero house. Every time I turn and talk to someone, they look beside them as if there’s someone else there that I’m talking to. Figure it out!

Top 3 moments with The Chief?
Meeting him for the first time at skatecamp; totally awesome!
I was down in Carlsbad filming for New Blood and didn't have any money to eat. The Chief would give me money out of his pocket for the week. I got really sick at the Zero house—bed-ridden for days. No one seemed to care. So Jamie came over and made me soup and grilled cheese. Cured me! Fuckin’ rights, mon!

Tunes you’ve been rockin’?
Sabbath, Metallica, Bad Brains. All the hard shit.

Places in the world you've been through skateboarding?
Venezuela. China. Poland.
