When and where did you begin this sport?
He began Para snowboarding at age 24.
Why this sport?
He loved snowboarding from the moment he first tried it but, living in Sicily, Italy, it was rare that he got the chance to enjoy the sport. In October 2011 he met Italian para-snowboarding coach Silvia Bresciani, who encouraged him to take up the sport competitively.
He was born with muscle weakness in his right arm. (cinap.unict.it, 21 Feb 2013)
