Where do you live? Where are you from? Tell us what you love most about your community.
I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I am originally from Ukraine.
What’s your favorite thing about your Boosted board? (Which one do you ride?) What did you use or ride before your Boosted board and how has your day changed?
I ride Boosted board Stealth. I love the acceleration and the feeling of being free. Also, there’s something about the sound it makes when you ride it. It’s like the Tesla of light electric vehicles. I drive a car to work because it’s far, but it has changed a lot as far as how I get around to go shopping or hang out with my friends. I haven’t left my Boosted board at home since I got it.
What was the most annoying thing about getting around town before you had your Boosted board?
Traffic! Here in Fort Lauderdale and the Miami area, traffic is just crazy. I hated getting stuck all the time. I feel like I was wasting my life. I love zipping through cars on my Boosted board and knowing that I am actually faster than them.
What are your favorite places to visit on your board where you live?
I love riding on South Beach and a couple nature parks around where I live. Feeling the breath of the ocean every time I pass people and enjoy the sunshine.
Describe your favorite ride and what you see along the way?
My favorite ride is in Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. I love going there after work and just do a couple of loops full speed listening to my favorite tracks. It’s cool because I always get to see some wildlife such as iguanas or manatees on the way and I can always stop and take pictures.
What type of camera did you use to capture this content?
I used Canon eos R, Canon 6D mark II, and Mavic 2 Pro.
What’s your photo or video inspiration for this content?

What are reading now? Websites or favorite places to visit on the internet?

What are your daily routines or habits and how do they keep you motivated or on track?
I do have a fulltime job now as a software developer so even though my instagram feed might look like I have a very exciting life, you often would see my stuck on the computer. I do a lot of video work in my free time and love collaborating with brands to create something beautiful. My goal is to work for myself and be able to create meaningful content that would inspire others.
Are you a procrastinator or a time cop?
It depends! I do procrastinate a lot, but sometimes, when I really need to get something done I make sure to stay on top of it.
