When I was 18 I saw a family living in the mud in Samoa. They had the most genuine smiles I’d ever seen. It upturned my materialistic Orange County and I’ve been searching for the true meaning of “the good life” ever since
I traveled the world as a pro surfer from 18-20 until the worldwide success of my first surf film Riding Waves put me a track of directing. My work reflects a personal obsession of finding the true meaning of wealth and freedom.
