What has Influenced your career?
A lot of people and things in my life have influenced me.

What is your morning routine?
My alarm goes off and i reset it for another hour. Get outta bed, take a #1 or #2 or a combo of both. Let the dogs potty as i smoke. Then morning work out and finally get into the shower. Put on my birthday suit along with my eyelashes and maybe brush my teeth hahahahaha

If you could interview one person, who would it be and why?
Living person I would interview George Lucas because mans a fucking genius on a vast range of shit and I love me sum Star Wars! Dead person I would interview Salvadore Dali for all the obvious reasons

Best advise you can give a new apprentice:
Fuck off….. Hahaha well that’s what I was told when I started. Shit is not easy and I still feel like an apprentice so I guess i would say: Be a sponge. Be respectful. Go above and beyond and never stop learning. Swallow any pride or ego you have and appreciate this gift that can take you as far as you take it.
