Short Bio : Born and raised in Newport Beach, California I quickly picked up all forms of wave riding with my friends wether it was surfing, bodyboarding, bodysurfing, or skimboarding. I also raced amateur motocross until I had a bad crash that broke a few vertebrae in my spine and left me paralyzed with a 5% chance of walking, and also 2 big rods and 11 screws in my back from surgery. Its almost been 2 years now and Im 100% recovered and more stoked then ever to be back in the ocean almost every day doing what I love. My absolute favorite thing to do is bodyboard The Wedge in Newport on a huge south swell. I graduated from Newport Harbor High School and moved to Santa Barbara for school where I am studying to be a Physical Therapist. I am loving it here in Santa Barbara and feel right at home living in another surfing city and community with really cool people.
