Short bio

Masters Degree in Political Science. With skate-aid, we are currently working in four African countries and in Afghanistan. Skateboarding is an individual sport as well as youth culture. With these two functions, skateboarding is more than just exercise and body consciousness: Skateboarding facilitates self-definition and identification. At skate-aid I am responsible for establishing the initiative and its work in the field of development cooperation and on an international level.

My involvement in Sport & Development

With skate-aid we want to achieve Development, Integration and Education through Skateboarding. Thus, we get hope rolling for those living in poverty and regions affected by crises using the pedagogic and educational power of the skateboard.
