I've Been living in New York City since I was 3 years old. Board sports have always been a passion for me. I was big on skateboarding, surfing and windsurfing until kitesurfing started to get big at my local beach around 2004. I knew it was the sport for me. I Started kiting in 2005 at age 10 at my local beach called Napeague Bay in New York. I've been kiting as much as possible ever since! Kitesurfing is like no other sport. There's endless possibilities and it combines a ton of different sports. For me it has made my favorite pastime sports like windsurfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing all into one sport. At the moment I look forward to continuing my progression in freestyle and waveriding and overall just having fun with the sport and seeing where it takes me. Soon I will be in college studying Mathematics and Finance, hopefully I end up somewhere warmer than here in NY!
