Why do you love to skate? Skating has taken me to places, which would have been impossible without. Tell us about your personal philosophy, ethic, and value as a skater! Having skated since I a pre-teen, I have always had idols and role models to look up to for inspiration and direction. Being an adult for a while now, I have taken on that same role of influencing, and have been using it as a tool to continue pushing myself & develop my skating skills for all of us to enjoy. 

What keeps you pushing forward in skating? Inline products are not done developing, and with the changes, I want to push skating even further & see what’s possible with wheels. 

What is your favorite place to skate? The perfect streets of Barcelona, Spain. I love that place. 

What is your favorite trick? The POWERSLIDE down big smooth banks in the streets. 

What advice would you like to give? Get inspired by others, but focus on doing YOU.

Any hobbies outside of skating? Making art… Photographs, films, paintings, etc.

Do you have a life philosophy or phrase that inspires you? Warhol saying something like “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”, but I’d like a little bit longer, ha. 

What is your favorite moment in skating? Living & working in the BCN Powerhouse Studio for a year. I met a lot of great people & shared so many amazing adventures.
