Skiing is and has always been my biggest interest. When skiing as young boy I always did it the traditional way in the slopes but in early age I recognized the older guys doing cool tricks in the jumps, I became very inspired to do the same. That´s the way how I became skiing like I do today.
After a couple of years did I understand that skiing is something I want to do in the future. I applicate to the Freeride Gymnasium in Malung to became a better skier. This education have given me the opportunities to develop as skier in one of the best ski-resorts in Sweden.
Beside skiing I put my energy into skateboarding and my friends.
The goal with my skiing is to always have fun and become as good as possible.
Finally do I want to thank my sponsor 2117 of Sweden for helping me achieving my goals!
