professional skateboarder, dad, videogame character, ceo, kid chauffeur, global hopscotcher, food glutton & public skatepark defender. I'm old; get over it.

This is quite literally where it all started. My first time on a skateboard, 1977. And I still have the board.

I had a board just like this in 1980. Cool, it inspired me to dream.
