What is there to say…skateboarder, photographer, and contemporary artist and (arguably) equally successful in each. The latter of which creeps into the interview right away with the response to question 1 with the drawing and text on the image.

Looking at all the responses I truly appreciate how he didn’t simply just pull photos from his portfolio and instead dug deep to answer each question.

And with that and as a fellow American I appreciated his ironic response to question 3 and the decidedly less sensual response to question 7 that was quite different. I too share his vice in response to question 8 in my obsession of cathode ray tube televisions! For his breadth of work check the links below:
