Explain the feeling you had the first time you put on skates.
It was a completely different emotion than I have felt or understood. It is a feeling of freedom. With a pair of skates on your feet you can go around the city doing what you want.
What is your inspiration to keep skating?
My own mind and way I see things in life.
We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
It creates a better community with the people around the world. It is not just spending a good time with the people that are living in the same place as you, but sharing a feeling and good vibes with everybody from all over the world.
How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
Both as a person and as a skater, meeting people, showing what we love, and helping each other to achieve new challenges in this world.
What’s the most helpful tip you want to share with any skater?
When you feel safe on skates with all your protective gear, you are going to enjoy the ride even more! Never skate in fear. Wear your protective gear!
Imagine a world filled with animals who can skate. If you could be any of those animals what would you be and why?
I would be a leopard because it is a fast and agile animal.
