Professional Kiteboarder , founder and owner of EPIC kites. Yes, I still kite a lot.

Location you like to ride:
Every place I kite has something special about it, but Greece, Barbados, The North Shore in Oahu and the Outer Banks are one of my favorites.
Music you like to listen to:
Every thing except Heavy Metal. I love classical when it is time to relax and concentrate on doing R&D.
When you are not traveling, what do you do?:
Good question!!! I am always working. So when I am not in the water testing or doing photo shoot or having fun, I am back at the office answering emails and designing something new. But I also love spending time with my wife and making time to play with the kids . I also spend a lot of time training my son Cameron in learning different kite boarding moves, and making sure he doesn’t hurt himself. And sometimes I take ballet classes with my daughter Olivia.
