Born in Lausanne, the 23-year-old athlete started skating at the age of 9 and it quickly became clear that skateboarding would change the course of his life forever. At 11 he entered his first competition and during his second, he placed on the podium. His love of competition had only just begun.
As the years went by, his passion for skateboarding grew as he became a regular on podiums all over the country, making him one of the best Swiss bowl skaters. This led to a spot on the Swiss national team and numerous invitations to international competitions such as the Dew Tour and the RedBull Bowl Rippers.
Last but not least, Greg cherishes sharing his passion and the skateboarding culture to future generations. He is currently developing a youth structure to offer skateboarding lessons and sessions throughout Switzerland. A great way to promote the sport he lives for.
In 2024, skateboarding will make its second appearance at the Olympic Games in Paris, and one of his dreams is to represent Switzerland at this legendary competition.
