About me

I am an oddball, sort of crazy guy with one simple goal, scootering. Scootering has been my life since I picked it up in 2008, and nothing motivates me more than to land a trick that makes me feel accomplished in myself. I have lived on the streets, been in mental facilities, and frankly been through a lot of hell. But the truth is that we all live in our own hell, and I want to inspire others to be the best version of themselves regardless of what people may say to belittle or doubt them.

I'm riding since 2008, more then 15 years.

What's your 'Scooter Goal'? (what do you want to achieve in your scooter career)?

I want to hit the biggest gaps hit by anyone on a scooter, and hopefully one day make scootering my full time career. I also want to inspire other people to live their dreams regardless of what others say to stop them.
