Why did you start breakin’?
“So I downloaded my first breakdance battle clip, Iron Monkey vs. Ivan, now that’s what made me want to start. I couldn’t decide for the first few years whether I should focus on both footwork and power or just power.
What made me want to become a powerhead? I was inspired by Korean and Japanese powermovers. Korean with the clean power, and Japanese with the creative power and speed. Feels nice to fly around right haha. It’s also very challenging and fun to work on those powermoves. Every session is a challenge, even though I slacked off for the first half of my b-boy experience haha.”
What is your greatest achievement in breakin’?
“Throwing airflare 1.5 (warp) on marble floor at Stony Brook haha.”
What are some future aspirations?
“My main goal is to succeed as a graphic designer. Second, to expand f.ob wear and make Floor Obsession an entertainment company.”
