Home Break: Santa Cruz, California
I'm from Santa Cruz, California. I've grown up all around town and spent a lot of my time north getting comfortable in the colder, harsher water between Santa Cruz and San Francisco. I started surfing Mavericks during the 2009-2010 winter and haven't missed many swells since. I'm engaged to Savannah Shaughnessy, one of the best female big wave surfers of all time. I spend the off-season lifeguarding and training by doing long distance paddles and competing in a few races as well. I'm currently in paramedic school and aspire to be a paramedic firefighter in Santa Cruz county.
