    I'm an industrial hygiene technician. Basically I run air samples at different places for different contaminants, asbestos, lead, heavy metals, etc. I work on a lot of asbestos projects doing inspections, making sure companies are going by the law. I have a B.S. in Environmental Science from UD. I worked in restaurants for many years, it took me like 8 years to get my degree. I lived it up, moved out to San Diego and worked in restaurants out there and surfed more than i worked. My advice to young people is put off the real world as long as possible, get that surfing in!!!!

    I surfed just about every day for as long as i can remember. Then last year i started college in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. You can say it cuts into my surfing life a little. I get to snowboard everyday, but nothing compares to a good day of surf. Take it from me, if you are thinking of going somewhere far from the ocean, you better have another passion, cause if i didn't have snowboarding or skating or DJing to occupy my time i would go insane. I can't even watch surf video's. I just freak out and start looking up ticket prices to Cali, which are to expensive. Oh well, after this year its gonna be a life of surf for me, I'm moving somwhere with good consistant surf. Snowboarding good snow everyday is one thing, but surfing good waves all the time is about a thousand times better in my opinion. Every time i look at the swell charts and see the outer banks firing i wonder what the hell i am doing with my life, being literally thousands of miles away from any form of breaking wave. But all good things come with time i guess.
