THE STORY


Profession:

Film Director & Founder of LAFLAIME


Current Location:

Paris


Your story as a skater:

I started skating in 2011 while filming friends from my team “Rolling Monkeys”.



THE COVER


What are values that you gained from skating that you make use of in your everyday life?


It’s a way for me to feel free: physically and mentally. A good source of inspiration for projects. Take good care of the body and mind, they need to be in good shape. The body never lies, listen to it when it talks to you!



GENESIS

What it means...


Authenticity

For me that means it is about what you create is unique.


Unity

The best way is to skate with my friends. We communicate without talking, our body language and our tricks is the way to go.


Risk

The only thing you risk when you try is to be better after your fall, so keep trying.


Responsibility

Inline skating activates my creativity: it is a true gift! My responsibility is to share.


Creativity

Is truly like love coming from heart.


Training

Make you disciplined.


Routine

No way - because everyday is unique.


Celebration

Give me the power to do better next time.



THE CONVERSATION


How does the skater community help you evolve as an individual?


Every skater has his own style and level and you have yours that makes you unique, and you can notice your individuality.



How does being part of a skater community influence the way you form new relationships?


Makes me communicative mostly because that is the way to keep good vibes in relationships.
