      Why did you choose CAMARO?
      I chose to wear CAMARO because they are the best wetsuit on the market. They keep you incredibly warm and are so sleek and stylish looking.

      My iPhone, an extra bikini and CAMARO suits

      I love water skiing since…
      I was six

      I started water skiing because of…
      Water skiing runs in my blood. I’m the third generation skier in my family on both sides, so was destined to swerve through the slalom course.

      Water skiing means to me…
      I absolutely love water skiing! I really enjoy being a part of a sport that is not only thrilling and competitive in itself but also offers a great community of friends and fun.

      My biggest goal…
      My goal is to continuously improve as long as I keep skiing. My biggest goal is to ski in one of the top pro tournaments one day, like the Masters.

      Do you have an idol? If so, who is it?
      Rhoni Barton-Bischoff is definitely one of my top idols.

    • My favourite word for water is…
      Home
    • There is nothing better in this world than…
      The feeling of landing your first flip!

      Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
      Having a career with my major (journalism) and living on or near a lake so I can ski every day after work.

      What is your motto?
      There is always another set or another tournament.

      Do you have a good tip for someone who wants to learn water skiing?
      Always make sure and have fun. That is key to an awesome set.
