Trey jumped on a skateboard for the first time at the age of 3 while on a family trip to one of skateboardings original hot spots, Venice Beach, CA. He now resides in Arizona where he’s become somewhat of a local legend among groms due mostly to his recent success tearing up parks. He started competing at 6. Trey loves to skate vert, but is making a name for himself in street as well. In the words of Trey, “I live to skate and skate to live”
