DANIEL WAS BORN IN EAST LA DURING THE EARLY 80'S AND HAS RESIDED IN THE CITY MOST HIS LIFE. DANIEL LIVES AND BREATHES LOS ANGELES SKATEBOARDING-

Q: GOT ANY COOL SCARS?
A:
EVERYTHING FROM THE TYPICAL KNEE AND ELBOW SCRAPES TO SOME THAT ARE EMBARRASSING LIKE WHEN I GOT STITCHES ON MY MAN PARTS. AND ONE FROM WHEN I DOVE INTO THE SHALLOW END OF A POOL WHILE WEARING ONLY A PIRATE EYE PATCH AND UNDERWEAR (12 STAPLES ON THE DOME). AND THOSE ARE JUST THE ONES YOU CAN SEE. THE EMOTIONAL SCARRING...WHOOO! THAT'S A WHOLE 'NOTHER STORY.

Q: IF YOU COULD SKATEBOARD ANYWHERE, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
A:
THE MOON. LESS GRAVITY. EASIER ON THE JOINTS. RUNNERS UP: EMB EARLY 90'S, 720 ARCADE GAME.

Q: WHAT SCARES YOU?
A:
TRYPOPHOBIA - A FEAR OF SMALL HOLES. GOOGLE IT. (((SHUDDER)))

Q: HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN SKATEBOARDING?
A:
NEVER LIKED THE IDEA OF COMPETITIVE SPORTS OR A COACH SCREAMING AT ME OR SET PRACTICE. SKATEBOARDING JUST FELT CLOSER TO A REFLECTION OF INDIVIDUALITY. A USEFUL AND CREATIVE OUTLET FOR ALL THAT ENERGY AND TEEN ANGST.

Q: HERES $20, WHAT DO YOU SPEND IT ON?
A:
TRUTH? HAPPY HOUR. MAYBE? BOWLING.

Q: IF YOU WEREN’T A SKATEBOARDER WHAT WOULD YOU BE?
A:
ONE SAD SACK.

Q: WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE YOU HAVE MADE ALONG THE WAY?
A:
EASY. NOT SAVING ANY MONEY. BUT BOY ARE THOSE MEMORIES GOLDEN.

Q: HOW DO YOU DEFINE HONEST HUSTLE?
A:
DOING EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL, IN WHATEVER WAY YOU DEFINE AS BEING SUCCESSFUL, WITHOUT THE STEPPING ON TOES AND STABBING OF BACKS AND LYING AND CHEATING YOUR WAY TO ACHIEVE THOSE GOALS?

Q: PIZZA OR TACOS?
A:
IF YOU FOLD A PIZZA IT IS ESSENTIALLY A GIANT TACO. IF YOU FLATTEN A TACO IT IS ESSENTIALLY A MINI PIZZA.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO SOCK STYLE?
A:
I USUALLY WEAR THEM ON MY FEET. UNLESS OF COURSE YOU FIND YOURSELF SLEEPING ON A BUS BENCH ON A COLD NIGHT AND HAVE TO WEAR THEM ON YOUR HANDS LIKE MITTENS.
