    I’m equipped by CAMARO since 2012

    Why did you choose CAMARO? I have always loved the wetsuits Camaro makes. They are lightweight, easy to ski in and look really good.

    Three things I carry ALWAYS with me when water skiing: Besides my equipment… iPod, sunscreen and food.

    I love water skiing since Before I can remember. I grew up on a lake in Connecticut and have skied since I was 3 years old.

    I started water skiing My family. My older siblings and I were always out on the lake messing around.

    Water skiing means Everything! Traveling the world and getting to be an athlete for my job is really amazing.

    My biggest goal... Winning the Worlds!

    What is your winter training location? Lake Sawyer in Windermere, Florida.

    What is your favourite location for water skiing? At home in Windermere. Adam [Sedlmajer] and I live on a lake there and it is really nice just being able to ski whenever we want and not have to wait in line!

    Do you have an idol? Musicians, artists, athletes… Anyone that pursues what they love.

    My favourite word for water is: Hmm… Voda? It’s Czech… I am trying to learn it, but not very successfully.

    There is nothing better... My dog Rocco

    Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Not sure. I am still trying to figure out what I am doing in 1 year!

    What is your motto? Hakuna matata.

    Do you have a good tip for someone who wants to learn water skiing? Have fun!
