-What do you think about the scene today, compared to how it use to be when you were first coming up?
The scene now compared to before is incredibly bigger for starters. There jams every weekend in ever state! Before there wasn't a event for almost months at a time and you had to travel in trunks of cars just to get there. I feel today that the rawness, the music, the freedom is missing. Many today really look the same based on what they think it is to Bboy.
-What do you like to do outside of bboying?
Shoot where do I start haha well I've been skateboarding since I was a early teen and still do today. Also really like to snowboard and wakeboard. Like experimenting with all kinds of music to see what my mind comes up. Like camping hiking and anything outdoors. From fishing in the ocean to sitting on the river. Most of all I just enjoy watching movies.
-You've traveled to many countries to do what you do,which country was the most memorable for you?
This question is hard cause EVERY country has given me something so memorable. Guess ending 2013 I have to say Osaka/Kyoto Japan was the most memorable. Had my crew and family there on top of seeing old time friends coming up in the scene with, Mortal Combat and Body Carnival.
