Why I choose to skate Riedell:
Riedell makes really great quality products and are always pushing the boundary of innovation in the skating world. Besides how great their skates are, to me, Riedell is the people that work there. They really go above and beyond to take care of their customers and as a result they really can stand behind any product that goes out onto the market. I have been on Riedells my entire life and have no regrets!
If I could only skate in one place for the rest of my life, it would be:
Barcelona is a dream to skate. The beach front, the weather, and the skating culture all exists there (and it’s why we are moving there this year!).
My personal motto:
“I have an idea!”
But honestly, I don’t know if it’d call it a motto, but in my adult life I’ve tried really hard to remember to focus on putting in the long term work to ensure that I can do the things I love. I have pulled off some epic schemes to follow my dreams to where I am today, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me next.
My favorite music to jam out to:
I love to listen to a variety of music – but some of my go to’s are Queen, Girl Talk, and a lot of music from the 60s.
3 words to describe me:
Excitable. Agile. Witty.
3 fun facts that most people don't know about me:
- One of my nostrils is bigger than the other.
- I was a premature baby.
- I had my front tooth knocked out when I collided with someone roller skating at the rink when I was 7 years old.
Someone I admire and why:
She doesn’t’ roller skate anymore, but I really admire Lorna Goldfinch aka Kamikaze Kitten. She has this incredible focus and joy in the art of practicing… and as a result she just becomes great at whatever she does. We are both dreamers willing to make big changes in our lives to keep it interesting, and I really admire her discipline and ability to weed out distractions while still keeping her humanity intact.
