Citizen of the world

  • Fat Freddy’s Drop, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Josh Garrels, Fleet Foxes, Pink Floyd, Dirtwire, The Black Seeds and Cheat Faker
  • My first Edge sport is Highline – slackline discipline than waterlining and longlining.
    I also share my passion with surfing, climbing and others that I don’t practice to often but also have a especial relationship such as: snowboarding, swimming, skate and some others.
“A person who likes to live outside of the boundaries, challenge myself compete with myself. I also love to share, love, knowledge, experiences and my life. Balance has been my guide word both in slackline as in my perssonal life. My intention is to continue pushing my limits objectively intend to develop even further my skills in Highline rigging and walking. For this to happen, it is essential to travel the world to interact with the entire slackline community, that has been overcoming the limits of this sport so much recently.”

What are you looking for in a Network?

I’m looking for a real experience of sharing content, generating value for both parties. I look for creating projects, developing ideas. I love the changes that life brings, and I see a big network as one of the main responsible for big changes. I’m really looking forward to reach a even better level of professionalism.

What events do you attend?

I do often go to cultural events. Love the smell of creativity. I’m also investing my free time in some festivals related to music, retreats, and art festivals. I’ve been in many sport events, and I can’t leave without it. Interacting with new people is my fuel, so are these events.

Who do you look up to in your profession and why?

I look up for Chris Sharma, due to his amazing efforts pushing he limits of sport climbing, by his work outside from the sport for his carisma and time that he has been on the top athletes. Bob Burnquist, by all his innovative mind and projects. All his skills beyond skate boarding, and his endless stoke to push even further the limits of skateboarding. I also look for Dabe Rastovic and Rob Machado, two amazing surfers that show a much bigger meaning to their lives than just live and surf good waves. I think life is larger than our main practice as athletes.

Do you create/co-produce your own video content?

I do often come with the idea, and from that we start a scrip and all it’s process. I love to come up with crazy projects, work on than but some hours on research and than go to the practice field. I have some close friends that I’m used to work with, but besides that I’m always keen to share some of my points of view and aesthetic aspects with the people working behind the lenses.

Do you play video games?

I don’t really spend time on video games, more of real life person.

Do you belong to any charities or non-profits, do volunteer work?

Not at the moment.
