Graduated: Expected Graduation December 2017 from UCF

Degree: Pre-Law

Currently: Working at JP Kiteboarding and Attending UCF

Name the college kiteboarding club you were apart of and tell us about your involvement?

University of Central Florida Kiteboarding Club. Go Knights! I was a member first and then became President for 2 years.

Where were your local spots?

I mostly kite in Cocoa beach however I live in Orlando so we travel wherever there is wind.  That’s the awesome part about being in the middle of the state.


What school did you attend, the program you were enrolled in?

A.I went to the University of Central Florida and I plan to graduate with my Bachelors in Pre Law this December


What were your best times in the CKA?

I think that some of the best times were nationals.  The last three years I went to nationals with UCF and it was a blast.  It was great getting to meet riders from colleges across the country and even getting to meet people from around the world.  We also had the opportunity to meet many pro kiteboarders as Nationals takes place around the same time as Triple-S each year!


Where do you see the CKA going in the future?

I think that the CKA will only get better with time.  We continue to see growth in the clubs each year and I think that with the involvement of sponsors, alumni, kite schools, and students the organization can really take off. The start of the scholarship this past year I think really brought the CKA into a new level.
