Okay, here’s one I’ve been waiting to ask a long time: what’s next? In every interview we’ve done I’m pretty sure you dodge this answer by saying you’ll get through school and figure it out… or be able to talk about what’s next when you get to this point. Well, you’re here! So what’s the plan?
Ha ha ha, very true. At this point I’m still very involved with Razors and skating in general. I work very hard at keeping myself in shape so I can still maintain a strong level of skating and at this point I still feel like I can push the envelope. Besides that, I’m obviously very interested in the business side of things. Being pro in the industry for over 10 years I have a good understanding of what goes on and what things I think would help our sport. I’m assuming that the answer is not as direct as it should be but I’m still figuring things out, too!
We hear a lot of speculation that you are going to ascend into a role of “running” Razors. Is there any truth to that? (We think it’d be pretty cool.)
Ha ha ha, I wouldn’t say that there is any truth to that but if the chance came up I would jump at the opportunity.
Wrapping this up, anything you want to add or people you want to give a shoutout?
I’d like to thank all of my sponsors out there who stuck with me through my college career and worked with my schedule to finish projects and schedule tours (most importantly) which helped me finish college with no DEBT. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Any last minute tips for bladers trying to juggle blading and real-life responsibilities?
Its all about time allocation. If you want anything bad enough you will find a way to allocate your time and reach your goals.
Then all right, we’ll call it a wrap. Thanks Brian, and congrats again. Good luck with what’s next.
Thanks everyone at ONE!
