Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?

 

I have endless respect and adoration for Rodney Mullen as a person and a skateboarder. I first began skateboarding when I got a "girls kick ass" board for my 13th birthday. I had a lot of peers who were into skateboarding and super supportive of a female, so I had some good years. Currently I am retired, but have the forever-love.

I love the notion of creation. Anyone who understands this mindset is my peer, my inspiration and my support.

Bikeriding. Observing nature. Drinking far too much coffee.

My family, my friends and my feelings.
