Favourite spot: Milano Centrale
What first drew you to skateboarding: I was initially drawn to skateboarding because my older brothers did it.

I got lost in it in the best way.
Favourite sauce flavour: RED SAUCE
How much wax is too much wax: Just gotta adjust to it and make it happen. Too much is better than none!

Your worst skateboarding injury: Elbow or shoulder popping out.
Plans for 2018: Three or four street parts, get a cover, multiple interviews, Hollywood 16, get married, get a shoe sponsor, stay healthy & have fun!
