About your host

I’m the co-founder and Executive Director of Cuba Skate, Inc. I fell in love with Cuba after studying abroad in Havana during my senior year of college, and since then I've been back many times to work with the organization and lead cultural exchanges with pro skaters and university students. Every time I go back I am more motivated by our Cuban family.
