As for who I admire, it’s all of my other coaching colleges here in Boston. I get to train almost every day with a whole bunch of crazy strong, crazy talented athletes. Evan Beyer, Adrian Ruiz, and Blake Evitt, Natalia Boltukhova, and Marcus Lincoln. The whole crew here in Boston, we put together a really strong group of coaches and I love that I get to train and coach with them on a regular basis. It’s a super fun group, and it’s inspiring to hang out and train with them.
Outside of the parkour sphere I’ve got a friend here in Boston who goes by Skunk. He’s an artist that founded an art bicycle group that I’m a part of. We build and ride modified art bicycles around Boston. This group has been around for 20 years. The fact that he’s been able to keep this going, a organization that exists just to make absurd bicycles and ride them around the city playing funk music and giving people on the sidewalk high fives. His positivity to roll with the ups and downs of life is inspiring.
