What do you do at Blade?I am the head tester. That means being in charge of all prototypes that come in, arranging them for testing and of course the fun part is to test them out and give feedback.

What is the best thing working for a kite company? Board shorts is the mandatory dress code.

What is the one thing you are most proud of that you have done at Blade? I have been working on the new High Score kite for a few months now and this kite is something I have put a lot of time and effort to get it to where it is now.

What is the funniest kite related experience you had while testing kites?When I was in Australia a few years ago we were bored one day with fairly little wind and just decided to tie together two kites to get more power and then used a kid's inflatable raft as the board. The funny thing is that it actually worked.
