When did you first know you could creatively roll?
One day I rolled something that looked kind of like a person so I took some coloured papers and dressed it up like a friend. The reactions I got to that joint were insane, so from then on I just set about seeing how far I could take it.
What’s your favorite strain?
I’m not really a strain guy. I prefer sativas but will smoke or roll anything you pass me.
What’s your personal best?
My favorite is the ship in the bottle. I’ll never reveal how I got it in there. I’m probably most well known for rolling cats, dogs, mice, pixies, and T-Rex.
Those are rolls that I have mastered and do quite often so people kind of associate them with me. The 130 gram Pegasus was probably the largest and most technical roll I’ve done.
Where is your fave place to get high?
Thompson Caribou Syrup Bar in Vancouver, BC. They have the most amazing infused drinks. I don’t drink alcohol but I love the experience of going to bars so I’m really glad there’s something for the rest of us.
Who would you love to roll a mad blunt for and what would it be?
I’ve always wanted to smoke with the girls who play the Princesses at Disneyland and Disneyworld while they were in character.
I’ve rolled quite a few different Disney Princesses so I’d smoke each one with the same character.
What’s the longest time you’ve spent on a roll?
A few projects have taken over 24 hours. They were Joan of Arc (40 hours, 20 grams), King Ghidorah (30 hours, 32 grams), and Pegasus (60 hours, 130 grams).
Each of those rolls were very experimental, and I’ve since done joints based on them that were much smaller and took much less time. The long rolls are more of a learning process.
