1.Greetings from the ruins from Peru Hell Nic,hows going the things there? news?
Thing's are good for me right now. I have just been working and skating alot. Learning new tricks and making new friend's. Life is good!

2.Let us know more about your life, when you started to destroy spots and the street?
I grew up in a broken home in the east San Francisco Bay Area. My mother raised my sister and I. I got my first skateboard when I was 11 and was skating and roaming the streets until I was about 19. My mother moved me to Southern California when I was 14. I met this guy named Scotty Cox from Sole Technologies (E's, Etnies, Emerica) and he started taking me around teaching me how to skate transitions. I've been skating for almost 16 years and 9 of those years I only skated street.

Ace Trucks, Hoax MFG, Pocket Pistols (flow), Black Fly's Eyewear, Globe Shoes (flow) Attic Skateshop, Bridge To Skate Organization and Al Ramone Tattoo!

Costa Mesa, California has a great scene, we have spawned a few pro's from our local park such as Ryan Spencer, Ryan Reyes, David Loy and the we got Grosso and Omar Hassan living in Costa Mesa as well. There are many street spot's and pool's in this area so we never get bored!

5.You form part from some crew? team?
Not really, I mostly just skate by myself or with the little homies at the park. I you wanted to call us a crew then my "crew" consist's of kid's age's 11-19. I love giving inspiration to the youngster's at the parks. It keep's me going and having a smile on my face!
