3. Brian Gaberman memory: 
Brian asked me if I had any Woody Guthrie records one day while we were skating. About a year later, I was in my studio that was on a bus mixing some records. I heard my gate open. It was Brian. He handed me an issue of Skateboarder and I was on the cover. I coudn’t believe it. Right then I went into the bus and pulled out a Woody Guthrie record and handed it to him. 

4. Being teammates with Chris Pastras: 
Chris is one of the funniest and smartest guys I know. He has hooked me up through out the years and kept me in the mix.  He’s kind of like an older brother in a way.
