Where and when did you start paddling?

I started in 2007 on the Kaituna River.

Why do you ride on water?

I paddle out of pure love and passion for this sport. Next, it's probably adrenaline and new challenges.

What is your favorite place to paddle?

That's a tough one...there are so many great places but if I had to choose it would be Little White Salmon, Big Bannana Alseseca and Nevados Chile.

What is your best boating experience?

When I'm with a group of good friends on some epic river (anywhere in the world).

What are your goals and plans for the future?

Trying not to get hurt. Push the boundaries. Travel to unexplored places and rivers around the world.

What do you like to do when you're not paddling?

Mountain bike, running, I like all kinds of sports.
