Why do you love to skate? Skating gives me such a feeling of freedom and lightness, nothing else can come close to those feelings.

Tell us about your personal philosophy, ethic, and value as a skater! As soon as the skates are on, nothing else matters!

What keeps you pushing forward in skating? Just skating itself pushes me really hard. But especially to see the joy in the faces of kids when they take skating lessons and realize the number of possibilities, this pushes me to give everything for skating.

What is your favorite place to skate? Obviously wherever my skates take me. But if I have to choose, Schladming is one of the best places for offroad skating.

What is your favorite trick? I don´t have a favorite trick.

What advice would you like to give? Find one thing that really gives you joy and stick to it for the rest of your time.

Any hobbies outside of skating? Outside of skating my main hobby is videography. It's cool because I can connect these two things pretty well.

Do you have a life philosophy or phrase that inspires you? Go where you feel most alive, go beyond the ordinary.

What is your favorite moment in skating? One of the best moments in skating for me was the first time I tried offroad skating. Such a good feeling!
