Since this is a brand new space it can be a little confusing where to start, so I thought people might want to introduce themselves so we can get to know the people behind the usernames...
So, a bit about me:
I'm the Goodpush Programs Manager with Skateistan, and one of the admins for this forum. I'm really interested and excited to see how people use this space, and am always open to ideas and feedback to make it more useful for you. Before I had this role, I spent five years working with Skateistan in Afghanistan and Cambodia, mostly in fundraising and communications, but also getting to do a bit of everything (which I love).
I'm originally from Calgary, Canada, where I started skateboarding in 1997. I moved from Calgary to Vancouver to study Political Science and got to be a part of one of the best skate communities in the world, spending my days working at Antisocial Skateboard Shop. I did some work and volunteering at various non-profit organizations and was super stoked when I got accepted in 2010 to be one of Skateistan's first volunteers in Kabul.
Aside from skateboarding and this whole skate charity movement I'm into motorbikes and books. Currently living in Berlin, and looking forward to catching up with a lot of people soon at Pushing Boarders in Malmo!
