Who influenced you to develop the drift style you have?
I got into drifting when I was 15 so its changed over the years but overall I think I take aspects from a variety of people and try to make my own. I can’t really attribute my style to any single person.
When did you first truly get excited about drifting?
I was excited from the jump I think, I grew up and had phases like most kids, I had the skater phase, the sports phase and nothing really stuck but throughout all of that I always loved cars. Then I found drifting and it stuck heavy. But I definitely got more into it when I start competing and from then really starting taking it seriously.
What cars influenced your car’s style?
Ive built over a half dozen different cars which all mostly had influence from super clean cars i'd see on build threads on Zilvia or Option Videos but my Z specifically is more so an evolution of my own style, Ive had at least one 350z every second of the last 8 years so i kinda have figured out a formula that looks good and in my opinion is pretty unique for how common a Z is nowadays.
What drivers influenced your driving style?
Honestly Forrest Wang has been a huge influence, I've known him for many years through mutual friends and I remember riding in his old 1J S13 car for the first time and I was absolutely blown away by his left foot braking, this was near the time I was just getting into competing. So yeah Ive always focused on going as fast as I can and using my line and braking to put the car where I want, super fun stuff.
Why did you choose to take the path through drifting that you did?
Ive done the whole pro-am thing, that was cool, got my pro2 license, that was a huge milestone for me but kinda after that I just wanted to build cool cars and drive with my friends. I focus a lot more on creating content as my actual career is a lot fo that but at the end of the day just trying to enjoy myself with great people and great looking cars.
