One of my biggest personal motivations is movement, and being able to control and master your body. This has come in many forms (yoga, martial arts, and even attempts at parkour), but the two primary areas for me have been Capoeira and Slacklining.

I've been actively training Capoeira since 2011 in both Los Angeles and Cambridge UK, and while I'm relatively inexperienced in slacklining, I still love the freedom it provides and try to develop when I can.
