How did it feel to learn the 2020 Summer Games were postponed? What have you done to manage and prepare for games this summer?

It's disappointing to see your entire year plans flipped upside down. Luckily, I don't spend much time dwelling and just focused on creating a new plan to prepare for 2021.

What’s your most memorable accomplishment?

My most memorable accomplishment is definitely turning Pro. It was a dream I had since I was a young kid and to finally get a board with my name on it was such a crazy feeling.

What is the biggest piece of advice you would give to an aspiring skateboarder?

If you live and breathe skateboarding, let that passion keep pushing you. Push yourself every day you step on your board and most importantly, enjoy the ride.

How do moments of “Cheer” make your day better?

It's important to focus on the process and find the positives even when our path is rocky. Finding the fun in all situations to me, are my true moments of "Cheer" on this road to Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
