About Me
  I have been skating all of my life but really became passionate about it since inlines were introduced over a decade ago. I instruct beginners and intermediates on how to balance, skate, turn, and most importantly - stop! I specialize in recreational, fitness, and street skating with an emphasis on fun and safety. I utilize my background as a Personal Trainer to aid students who are interested in an aerobic fitness training program as well.

  I am Certified and insured by the International Inline Skating Association (I.I.S.A.), and the National Skate Patrol. I am on the Board of Directors for the Empire Skate Club of New York, and participate regularly on the 'Wednesday Night Skate' and other group distance skates, and have raced in the NYC Skate Marathon. I also serve on the Board of the Central Park Skate Patrol and I am the Director for the Central Park Skate Patrol Skate School.
