I graduated cum laude from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY, with a degree in Graphic Design. After college, I moved to Santa Monica CA where I windsurfed for Hollywood, in television shows and commercials, all while creating a successful graphic design business. About 16 years ago, I discovered the unspoiled, Wild West of Southern Baja, which coincidentally was about the same time the sport of kitesurfing evolved.

Since as early as I can remember, I dreamt of flying. The pairing of a kite and a surfboard makes self propelled flight a reality. Whether it’s charging windswept swells, or soaring gravity defying airs, kitesurfing is my lifestyle, my passion, my absolute STOKE!
