This is an image I hope no one wakes up to see. Unfortunately, I’ve been looking at this, or a version of it, since last Tuesday. I was diagnosed with flu a few weeks ago and it lingered so my primary doc did a blood test. That afternoon I got a call telling me to go to the hospital asap. I woke up in the hospital to a hematologist telling me there was something wrong and that my hemoglobin was so low he was surprised I walked in under my own power. I got two bags of blood but my hemoglobin was still dangerously low so I got two more. At the end of the second day, the hematologist returned and delivered news I never believed I’d ever hear: I had leukemia. Next stop, Moffitt cancer center in Tampa and that’s when it became real. I had cancer. I arrived at Moffitt Wednesday night and I’ve been here ever since. The doctors and nurses at Moffitt quickly started running tests and stabilizing me. I had a bone marrow biopsy first thing Thursday morning which confirmed leukemia. Moffitt is amazing and my level of comfort is a priority. Best of all, the two most important people in my life, Leslie and Emily have been able to stay in my room this whole time. The difference that has made in my attitude is immeasurable. It’s late Monday and I’m sitting in my room, listening to the National and tapping away. I start chemo tomorrow and the early results of the bone marrow biopsy leads the doctors to believe that my chances of a full recovery are good. The next three weeks are going to be shitty. The chemo is going to knock me on my ass but then I should get better. I’m in good spirits - please send positive vibes my way. This will be a long process but I’m confident I’m going to beat cancer. #leukemia #moffitt #tampa #cancer #cancersucks
Spent 2 days working with @noravexplora on a short spot to announce she’s joining the @swatch_us pro team. This project also happens to be the first produced by the creative team at Boardreps.com. I’ve joined with old friends @rtclem , @meronek and Jesse Norton to start a creative agency that takes skateboarding seriously and presents it in a unique and authentic way. With skateboarding being included in the 2020 Olympics we’re stoked to help brands create stories that honor the last 40 years of a sport that has meant so much to me and I couldn’t ask for better partners.

Stoked that St Pete now has a world-class skatepark. Rad seeing old friends and so much excitement from all around the state for the new park. It took 25 years of pleas from skateboarders and @stpeteskatepark alliance years of hard work to convince the city that skateboarding wasn’t just a nuisance. Excited to see @stpetefl grow into an amazing cultural oasis that I’m proud to call home. And if you haven’t already, give @jayskateboarder and @nicknicksphoto a big pat on the back. Well done.
Spent time this week working with @kimi_swimmy who is one of the most the most talented people I’ve ever met. She spent hours free diving for fish and then treated the crew to several of the most unforgettable meals I’ve ever had. Her positive attitude and good vibes have left me inspired for a long time to come #haleiwa #hawaii #freedive #onset #badass
