I had been working in a small mom & pop sporting good store that bought and sold used sporting equipment. I had gotten the job as a way to earn some meager cash over the summer while school had been on recess. The owner was, often times, in a drunken stupor in his little upstairs office, while my co-worker and I ran the store.

Skateboarding has been the focus of my life for the last decade. Whether it was playing an active role as a photographer/writer contributing "content" to the hype machine or being the eye candy in front of the lens, I've managed to carve out a double existence within this small humble realm, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't acknowledge the fact that I've been extremely fortunate to have been able to live such a life. With that said, if there is one thing you realize through all of this, it's that stagnation is the swan song to our industry. The moment we accept complacency within our spectrum, is the moment when everything begins to unravel.

- On Sunday, September 27th over 1000 stoked riders invaded the streets of Paris, which were closed to traffic during the car-free day. In the program that day: a giant ramble through Paris streets, a giant picnic at Invalides gardens then some funny challenges such a costume parade, an uphill longboard race and a slide jam. 9:30am : I arrived at the gathering spot "Place de la République" along with the crew. A dozen riders were already there ready to go.
