I live in Oceanside. I grew up in Agoura Hills.
Your surf motto?
I am constantly humbled, amazed, inspired, refreshed (and on and on and on) by riding waves and being in the ocean. I feel absolutely blessed to have surfing in my life.
Now boil that down to two words.
How do you pay the bills? Do you live like a monk?
After many years balancing surf coaching, massage therapy, professional surfing, I needed something more consistent and found a job at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside last April. I just became the Operations Manager and am now with the museum full time, so that is my main gig right now.
What's the best thing in the California Surf Museum?
I love the maps, books, John Severson movie posters, and recycled resin jewelry. There's a ton of fun art prints too.
