I was always running and jumping around as a kid, and joined all the sports teams at school. In high school I was captain of the football and basketball teams, and also started practicing extreme sports like skateboarding, bmx and inline skating.
While at university I saw a commercial which featured a guy running across rooftops performing flips and spins, and decided to give it a try. I did some research and found that it was called Parkour, and have been training ever since.
I have been very fortunate to be able to freerun for a living. I get to travel the world, meet great people, and have fun! I used to work in a boring office, and I used to count down the minutes until I could drive home, change out of my shirt and tie and get out and train. I told myself i’d never go back to that again, no matter what it takes.
Life’s short, let’s enjoy it while we can.
