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 late 2004 right when I turned 10 years old at my local beach Napeague Harbor in Long Island, New York. I've been kiting as much as possible ever since! I'm now a college student at Rollins College in Orlando, FL, but come back to New York for the summers. I mainly ride at the 520 Slick and Cocoa Beach when I'm in Florida. I recently began competing on the Collegiate Kiteboarding Tour.  

One of the reasons I love kiteboarding is because it's like no other sport. Kiteboarding gives me an intense feeling of freedom and never gets boring. There's endless possibilities and it combines a ton of different sports together. For me it has made my favorite pastime sports like windsurfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing all into one sport. And the best part is that you can get a lot of air! At the moment I look forward to kiting for as long as possible and continue to push myself in freestyle riding and waves.
