Alias: La, hill
Gentlemen/Boys: I do like them.
Pets: Karma, my goldie.
Food: I love vegetables. Unadulterated.
Drinks: Non-plasticized water, please. And jasmine green tea.
Ride: Most importantly, it works, plays music, and holds longboards and friends all at once.
Music: Mostly older rock and roll music.
Films: I really enjoyed The Present. Also, The Darjeeling Limited and Alfonso Cuarón’s A Little Princess.
Television: Guilty pleasure. I can’t not watch True Blood.
Games: Cranium is the greatest game ever created. I love board games, word games, and crossword puzzles. Simple pleasures.
Phone: Of the Apple persuasion.
Camera: Many: digital, film, camera obscura. It’s wonderful to have images for remembering.
Computer: Also of the Apple persuasion.
Spending: Is not something that I can afford to do. Which is just fine, because, as it turns out, some of the loveliest, most fun things are completely free.
Vices: I avoid ding repair at all costs.
Spare Time: Is spent in the ocean with people that I love, for the most part. And, studying for the GRE.
Beef: With the idea of “growing up.” And people/companies who think that the ocean is a waste receptacle. And chauvinism.
Surfing: Takes over your life (thankfully).
Philosophy: Manifestiny. The way I do anything is the way I do everything.
Board(s): I love logs. And surf mats. And fins for body surfing.
Frontside: Is fun.
Backside: Is also enjoyable.
Wave: Really, anywhere ridable with friends is a good time. But, ideally, a peeling right (left would be fine, too) pointbreak on a warm evening with some friends, similar to those found in Byron Bay. And clear turquoisy water, too, please.
Travels: Are excellent for expanding one’s sense of self and re/discovering how magical Earth is.
Training: College, travel, decision-making
Last Words: “Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed” –Storm Jameson
