- How did you get started on skating, and when?
Skating is in my blood, my dad skated back in the day on wooden wheels and at age 11 I wanted to give it a shot. My first year skating was the first year inlines came on the scene. I started skating on quads, but after seeing Tony Heyer destroy the field on inlines at my very first meet in Tulsa, OK, I knew I had to have them.
