Meet Joey "Mango" from Newport Beach, CA.
The one word that best describes Joey's life today is "Frothing."
If Joey could change one thing in the world, he would "Destroy localism and less rivalry." The way he would go about making htis change would be to put off good vibes.
One year from today, Joey would like to create a fantasy factory for artists, athletes and musicians to have a place to hang out and create art and live out their passions.
If Joey's life were a movie, it would be about rebounding and refocusing his life while working hard and traveling the world. The title of his movie would be called "Always Looking Up."
I met Joey while we were checking out the surf at Sleepy Hollow. He was taking a break after an earlier surf session.
Joey and I had a good conversation about the good and bad vibes around the surfing culture. We both agreed that it's best to share waves and treat visitors as you would want to be treated when visiting other surf spots.
Hearing about Joey's years growing up with world famous surfers was inspiring! He confessed to making mistakes in his early years but is on a mission to rebuild his life.
There is something special about Joey. He is very friendly, outgoing and passionate about living life with meaning and purpose. The tattoo on his left chest has waves wrapped around a compass that points to his heart. He told me that he has always followed his heart and that's the inspiration behind the tattoo.
What I liked most about Joey was his desire to collaborate with other creatives to produce works of art. I can't wait to see Joey's "Fantasy Factory" come to life next year!
