I have followed skaters all over the world and Tulio had been one of the rawest skaters I’d seen, and we all know that Brazil has brought out some of the most gifted skaters. When I had the chance to meet him and talk with him, I realized he was perfect for Citystars. After speaking with the team and already having him in mind, I knew we had a new team banger for the terror squad. I’m blessed to know him as a friend and as a teammate. Be on the lookout for the Brazilian stallion of the future.—Kareem Campbell
