“I owe what I enjoy so much about my career, to my mindset. It’s like… we don’t know what we’re asking for. So could I be bigger? What does that mean? Can I still sleep in my van at the caravan park?

What more can I ask for, to play with Jack Johnson around Australia and I’m still sleeping in my van?

Like I have immense freedom, and good people around me get to go surfing with, I’m healthy, you know, so we must be careful what we ask for because I’ve also been in positions where you’ve got on paper what everyone wants and everyone around you would perceive is the thing to have, and that only means so much. 

You sleep in the same bed at night, you know, so I’ve been happy to see that early on, and gained Insight into just how true that is, and how you sleep in the same bed whether you play to 200 people or 2000 people, you know? “
