Explain the feeling you had the first time you put on skates.
I felt like I had a super power!
What is your inspiration to keep skating?
It’s just so easy to move around quickly and I feel so free. There is nothing like it.
We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
Skating is as green as it can get. If more people were skating, then the cities would be nicer to live in.
How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
I’m not trying to progress or reinvent myself. I just change as a person through the years, and it naturally reflects in my skating. I used to like power and I think I am now more interested in flow.
What’s the most helpful tip you want to share with any skater?
As I always say, one needs to learn how to stop under any circumstances. Once this is mastered you can do anything.
Imagine a world filled with animals who can skate. If you could be any of those animals what would you be and why?
I guess a monkey. haha, It could probably get very skilled!
