Natasher is the Editor-in-Chief of Rubicon Girl, living in the UK in the vibrant city of Nottingham, which has some great skate spots and some equally amazing skaters. There’s nothing she loves more than shredding the gnar on her board, but she rides her bike every day too and has always had a soft spot for blades. If you feel like you’ve seen her before, it might be because Tash has been both a radio presenter and a model…fingers in many pies! By profession, she’s a Medical Affairs Manager and Copywriter but at all other times you can find her having fun on a board, bike or just travelling and hanging out with skater (and non-skater) pals.
