- Something that most people don’t know about you: Danced for Madonna during the Re-Invention tour 2004. Was hired to skate during a song but then ended up dancing to “Holiday” in the show. Broke Guinness book of World Records in 1996 for highest air on a skateboard. I studied under a student of Yip man for Martial Arts. He was Bruce Lee’s teacher for Wing Chun and then several years in a southern style of Shoulin kung fu.
- Quote: “True Mastery transcends any particular art. It stems from Mastery of Oneself - the ability , developed through self discipline, to be calm, fully aware and completely in tune with one-self. Then, and only then, can a person really know himself.” Bruce Lee
- Career History. How did you start skating? I grew up surfing in Va. Beach. One year there wasn’t any waves and my friend showed me a mini-ramp and I loved how it was a continuous wave and the tricks were easier to learn.
