See what he has to say about his epic winning photo and the $4,000 it won for a trip of his choice

Did you purposefully get pushed in the pool or was it a random candid?

I didn’t get pushed in, surprisingly.  It was more of a Yo watch this type of thing to set the party off and get everyone going wild.

Who took the picture of you?

My best friend’s girlfriend, Daniela. Huge props to her!

What were you guys celebrating at the party?

Life, living.  It was Memorial Day Weekend in Vegas, so we just flew out there to party, no particular reason.

Do you have your prize trip all planned out? 

Well it couldn’t work out any better since I was planning on proposing to my girlfriend by the end of the year, so the earnings will all go towards the honeymoon to somewhere exotic, haven’t pin-pointed it out just yet!

What does the freedom of summer mean to you?

First thing that comes to my mind is friends and music, because that’s all my summers ever consist of; clubs, late night pool parties, just having fun and staying happy. That’s life: giving and receiving positive energy.

Plans for the rest of the summer?

Yeah, a really good friend of mine is getting married at the end of September, so that’ll be fun.  The reception place actually has a pool. I’ll jump in with my suit on for you guys!

Looking back, what crazy things have you done this summer in your Converses?

Converse Summer Photo Contest Mon, 01 Jul 2013 17:07:17 +0000 You already know that specific shoes are designed for specific sports, activities, and hobbies. There are shoes for walking, running, hiking, biking, dancing, climbing; really any niche category you could think of. But, what if we told you that your sneakers are designed for whatever you are willing to explore in them. Who says you can’t surf, or climb, or traverse over a river for that matter while wearing your Cons? Change your mindset. With sneakers, the only limitation is yourself.

With summer in full swing, Converse and Finish Line have come together to celebrate our favorite time of year with a photo contest of epic proportions.

Tap into your imagination, and snap a photo of yourself wearing your Converse in some epic, unlikely, and awesome situation that captures the freedom of summer. By showing off your creativity, you’ll be automatically entered to WIN a dream trip to anywhere in the U.S.A.

That’s right, it’s that easy…the more unimaginable, the more adventuresome the photo, the better your chances of winning the trip are, and don’t forget to tell us about why your shot is worthy of a dream trip.

The top 30 photos with the most votes will be reviewed by Finish Line to determine a winner, so get those photos out into the viral sphere.

Photo submissions for the grand prize trip must be submitted between July 1st and July 14th. As an added bonus, when you vote each day on your favorite entries from July 15th to July 21st, you’ll be entered to win one pair of Converse that we’ll be giving away each day within that time frame. So make sure to vote and vote often.

Good luck, and happy shooting!
