Hey Brandon, how did 2018 round up for you?

I’d say 2018 rounded up pretty well, won a competition up in Marble Falls, Texas which landed me a board sponsor with Schlaudie skate co. So, I’m pretty hyped on that, also I landed a wheel sponsor with Refuse Wheels. Shout out to both those guys for putting me on and showing me nothing but love!

What do you have planned for the new year?

My plan for the new year is to continue skating and going hard, I’m currently working on a street part that I’m hoping to drop sometime around June of this year.

Do you have a trip/contest planned for this upcoming year that you’re most excited about?

I have two trips I’m pretty stoked to go on. One up in Dallas, Texas with Schlaudie and then one in Midland, Texas.

Are there any pros that you look up to or that inspire you?

I’d have to say a pro that inspires me the most is Cody McEntire, his style is amazing as well as his skating.

Favorite thing to do when you’re not skating….

My favorite thing to do when I’m not skating is working on my car. It brings me a lot of joy knowing that I can order some parts and put them on myself.

Favorite food…

My favorite food that I could always grub down on would have to be some grilled chicken alfredo.

Favorite music…

Honestly, I listen to a wide range of music but when I’m skating I bump Juice Wrld.

What does a typical day look like for you?

My typical day would be waking up 10am, get some breakfast, find out where I’m going to go and skate today, once that's all planned out, I get going and skate til around 12 o’clock at night and start again the next day.

Any last thanks you or shout outs?

I’d like to say thank you to Schlaudie, Knavish, Refuse Wheels, Wicked Audio, Monster of course, and all my friends and family members that show me nothing but love and support. I appreciate all of y’all!
