Why do you love to skate? Skating for me is very empowering, it allows freedom of expression, using all my previous experiences blended seamlessly with the music that we love. The vibrant social aspect enhances this experience, creating a genuine connection within the global skate culture.
It's a universal passion that makes any place feel like home.
What keeps you pushing forward in skating? The sheer love for music, movement and expression keeps pushing me towards growing within my skating as well as the satisfying feeling of progression.
What is your favorite place to skate? I have a few places I love to skate in, for example a smooth outdoor surface on a sunny day or a nice rink, but what makes for a real experience is a great atmosphere and good music.
What is your favorite trick/move? I love to use my jam plugs as well as fusing my breakdance movements when I skate.
What advice would you like to give? Advice I always give to everyone is we were all once beginners, what’s most important is enjoying the journey and taking the time to have fun whilst growing and developing, lastly never shy away from expressing your true self!
Any hobbies outside of skating? Dance is my biggest hobby besides skating and I love fusing this with my passion for skating, travelling and being social whilst sharing and learning from these beautiful cultures.
What is your favorite moment in skating? My favourite moment was during the lockdown where everyone came together in car parks and skated all day everyday with pure joy and warm energy pushing each other to grow whilst having a great time.
Tell us about your personal philosophy, phrase, ethic, and/or value as a skater! Yes you can write a book…😊 As a skater I value empowerment and supporting the community to grow as a whole, I believe that a mentality of lack and competition often gets in the way of the infinite blessings and abundance the universe has to give and with this positive mentality we can facilitate the growth of skating worldwide and make everyone feel welcome and at home regardless of where or who they experience the joy of skating.
