How long have you been skating? 5 years.

Why do you skate? People tend to do what they like and for me skateboarding is one of those things.

What do you having coming up? There's two contests coming up this month, one in Portland, Oregon and another in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Schools coming up and filming some more. Hopefully getting to the beach and surfing more. Other then that, lots of eating and sleeping.

In terms of skaters, who do you look up to? I look up to my friends but I mostly look up to Pat Ngoho. There's tons of people who can skate and do tricks but not everybody has a nice style. Pat's got it down, without trying. He's rad.

What do you do when you're not skating? Well, I'm probably eating, sleeping, or on my phone. Other then that I like cooking. I am learning how to surf and getting driving down. I finally got my license this year. I have a blog that I share with two of my close friends []. I sometimes draw. Film adventures/trips and edit videos.

So you were in Thrasher. How did that feel? It's just a building in the sketchy part of town, so pretty good.

What's the next step? Forward.

What advice do you have for the skaters reading this? Do what makes you happy and have a passion for whatever you do.

What's one unknown fact about you? If I told you it wouldn't be unknown.

What's your favorite TV show, musician and movie? Don't watch TV enough to have a favorite show. My favorite musician is Kate Nash/Katy Perry, I like them both. For movies I'd have to say the Original Pink Panther Series.

It's Carmen gets interviewed

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

The past couple days have been good for It's Carmen, for two reasons.

Free swag makes me happy!
1. I received a complimentary package in the mail from General Electric as a token of appreciation. It was a lovely vegan-friendly food basket including roasted unsalted cashews, roasted unsalted jumbo Israeli pumpkin seeds, Oriental rice cracker mix, dark chocolate granola and eden mix, which includes various dried fruits. Sounds munch-worthy, no? 

2. It's Carmen got interviewed by Eliza Gale Interviews where she talks "to people about the jobs they have and the jobs they want!" Check out It's Carmen's interview. Working my way up the Ladder of Success. 

Thanks for being a part of the journey.
