Performer and Instructor on the Supertube
Splashworld Provence, France | 2015-2016
The Supertube is the largest artificial wave in the world. Instructor by day and performer by night, I was one of the few featured flowboarders to carve, spin and catch air on the massive 3.3 meter wave face in front of thousands of club-goers. This was the most physically and mentally challenging job I’ve had, and one of the most rewarding.

Photographer and Business Owner

My surfing style influences my photography: I go with the flow. I like my photoshoots to be relaxed and fun with some direction if needed and my editing is natural and vibrant, showing each moment in its best light.
