How did you discover your talent? What got you started?

During Covid, when there wasn’t much to do my parents bought me a cruiser board to cruise around a pump track. I realized how much fun it was and decided to try skateboarding. I received my first skateboard just over a year ago and haven’t looked back.


What do you want to be when you grow up?

I would love to take skateboarding to a professional level if I am able to do so.


Who has been your biggest inspiration?

My biggest inspirations in skateboarding are Sky Brown, Fay DeFazio Ebert, and Ruby Lilley

What makes you keep innovating and pushing your skills to new heights? What’s the intrinsic driver or motivation?

What keeps me pushing and is the intrinsic driver or motivation is the thrill and rush of landing a new trick after hours, days and sometimes months of work and falls. There is no better feeling of accomplishing what I had set out to do.


So far, what has been your favourite highlight in life? An achievement? A specific moment?

Honestly, just being where I am at with my skateboarding feels like the best achievement.


Where do you want to be in 5 or 10 years?

I hope to be in a place where I am able to skateboard around the world and pretty much skate anything. The Olympics would be the ultimate dream if I am going to dream big.

In terms of healthy habits, what are your thoughts on the current beverage options out there?  (I.e. Energy Drinks, high sugar drinks etc)

I am not a fan of super sugary drinks so I usually stick to water or carbonated water.


How does Wize fit into your current lifestyle? And why do you choose Wize?

Wize is an awesome alternative to sugary drinks. I love the idea that I can have a wize drink as a treat after a hard skateboarding session but without getting all sugared and caffeined up. 


What are the next projects coming down the pipeline?

I have a few tricks I am working on and hope to participate in some local skate competitions this summer.

What’s your favourite flavour of Wize tea? When do you typically drink it?

I haven't tried them all, so I don't have a favourite yet. I am looking forward to trying them all. I would typically drink them after a skate session.
