I try and get out to LA to visit my buddy George a couple times a year. This visit, he ended up having a few days off and we spent pretty much all day every day just cruising different skateparks and ended up filming a few clips along the way. Read, watch, get stoked, then go do something rad today.
George has been involved in the BMX industry from professional rider to filmer/editor and that's how we met. After finishing up at college, he made the move out to LA. George is a fascinating and inspiring dude, so I decided to ask him a few questions to go along with this video.
HDDN: How long ago did you make the move from Texas to LA and what have you been up to out there?
GB: 5 years ago I drove out here with my Sister to work a freelance gig - that gig has since turned into a career that has really been so much more than I ever expected. But my days are spent deciding if I’m going to ride BMX or Mountain bikes - or beat my roommate in 2K. So many of my good friends from Texas have ended up out here, so I’ve got it going on. A spectacular girlfriend, great job, an okay group of friends, and lots to learn.
What’s on the horizon for the next five years?
I honestly don’t know - I anticipate large life changes on the horizon. I am one for letting the world show me that. But I’d like to achieve a lifestyle which allows me to work and live in amounts that keep me happy.
What are some words of advice that have drastically impacted your life?
Learning from working in the creative world, there should always be a reason for every decision you make and every decision you make should be made with pure confidence - even if it’s wrong. Another great one: “Don’t do perfect - do really good.”
What’s the best burrito in LA?
I’m going to tell you the best burrito, and then I’m going to tell you my favorite.
Best: Azteca Tortilleria
