Explain the feeling you had the first time you put on skates.
That was a long time ago, but I can remember that day like it was yesterday. I was addicted to skating in my neighborhood at night, full speed. The adrenaline I had back then has never been duplicated.
What is your inspiration to keep skating?
Being a pro cyclist, it gives me a training tool that can’t be duplicated. If I didn’t skate I couldn’t compete at this level.
We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
When I’m skating it make me see, hear, and feel this world in such a positive way.
How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
By keeping my energy up and positive. Ride or skate with everyone, feed off of them.
What’s the most helpful tip you want to share with any skater?
Never forget why you fell in love with this great sport. Sometimes you need to throw out all the structured workouts and just skate for you.
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 say a Falcon. They are sleek and super fast.
