Last photo you shot: A frontside grab at Pecos park, it was quite a fun session.
Pet peeve: Couples that sit on the same side of the table when they go out to dinner. It’s the worst. You stare at an empty seat, you knock elbows, and you talk sideways to one another. I hate that so much.

Andrew Cannon loves to ride a skateboard. If you have ever skated with Andrew or get a chance to, notice the good vibes and positive demeanor. If I had to choose a color to describe Andrew, I would pick Orange.  Maybe orange ’cause nothing rhythms with it and there’s only one person like Andrew—that I know of. And if you roll the orange on the ground it just cruises around enjoying what it’s doing. That may be a metaphor but whatever. I call Andrew to skate ’cause he’s down for the cause and to make the best of any situation.  He’s got more tricks that a prostitute in Amsterdam—personally, I wouldn’t know, but I’ve seen many people come out of the red light district smiling. He’s got most all the s.k.a.t.e dice tricks wired so be careful playing him. If you see Andrew on the streets give him a high five!  He likes that.—Ronnie Creager
