Oh hey there! How you doing? I’m David Graham and I’m from Scotland. It’s weird, I guess I pre­ y much always felt like I was destined to live by the sea. As I grew up, I realised that living in ski resorts and snowboarding every day is awesome, but that never stopped me from working the whole time. See the best thing about having to work and then snowboard when you can is that it always makes you feel good cause you feel like you’ve earned it , whatever your mood. In an ideal world, I guess I’d spend most of my time snowboarding and reading comic books with Laura and I’d never have to look at snowbladers ever again! Also, Iron Maiden would play for me and my mates every night of the week. And anyone that Simon Cowell gives a record deal to would be banned from ever singing a note again. That would be rad wouldn’t it? ;-) I tell you one thing that really pisses me off is not being able to play golf in the winter. Still, it’s not all bad. In general I’d say I’m happy most of the time. So that’s something eh?
