How did you get into skateboarding and how old where you?
I started inline skating and going to my local skatepark with my brothers, then my oldest brother got a skateboard for Christmas so when he wasn’t on it I used to have ago then I decided I preferred skating to inlining (obviously) and then it just went from there I suppose, I was 10 when I started skating.

So where did the name ‘Pooch’ come from ?
Ive had long hair the whole time I have skated, one day on the way home from the skatepark my friend Josh Johnston was messing my hair from the back seat to annoy me and he said it felt like he was stroking a dog and then he just started to call me a pooch. hahahaha
