On his first photo in TWS, and first cover:

I was very excited to have the cover of TWS. It was a frontside bluntslide on a curved ledge down a set of stairs in Huntington Beach. It was a good picture with palm trees and a sunset. It looked typical California. I think it’s every skater’s dream come true to have a cover of a magazine, and to have the cover of TWS magazine, one of the biggest skate magazines in the world, if not the biggest, was a very humbling experience. I’ll never forget that day for the rest of my life.
