"I was born in Nice, France from Polish parents and moved to Canada when I was 6. I started riding around 2004 after watching the NWD videos. At first, I was all about freeride, but I quickly noticed the terrain wasn't the best for Freeride where I lived so my riding migrated towards the streets, skateparks and dirt jumps. As time went by, I started to enjoy traveling and making videos with my friends just for the fun of showcasing our riding scene and what we do. One thing led to another and in late 2008, I started The Rise with the help of Matt, Jeremy, Vincent and Louis and it just grew from there. Today, I take care of all the website updates and stuff, I help with filming, editing, product designs and everything else there is to do while trying to ride as much as I can. "
