Tell us about your self, Who you are and what makes you so rad? I’m always up for trying something new, I love the outdoors, I’ve been biking ever since Coast Gravity Park was opened, which was 2014 so when I was 9 years old, and have never stopped riding since! I mean how could I? Riding bikes is the best thing ever!!

Contests or just riding? Why. Yes I race downhill, I just love the butterflies you get when your at the start gate and about to drop in, and all the nerves are at their highest , then you drop in and they all go away and it’s just you riding and having fun!

What’s your all time favourite mountain biking trip? Would have to be Crankworx Rotorua New Zealand 2020, it is soo amazing over there, I could totally see myself moving there one day.

What do you love about riding? Well I love how you don’t have to travel anywhere to ride your bike, you can just hope on a go, and how I can never stop smiling.

What you’re most proud of achieving through riding? I would have to say national champs at panorama 2019, I had had a couple bad crashes in the previous weeks before, including my last practice run before my race, luckily I was ok and pushed through and took the win only by a 10th of a second though, it was crazy.

One tip you would give to a grom wanting to become a pro rider like yourself. Well I am not a pro yet, but I would just say, have fun and you will succeed!
