Tell us about your hometown, how you grew up, who influenced you, and what shaped your life the most.
I grew up in a place called Mill Park in Melbourne Australia. I had a mini ramp close to my house and a bmx race track just down the road. I grew up mainly riding these two things, I enjoyed the the race track in two different ways. The right way for racing it and the other way, to do as many tricks as I could on the gravel lined track. Let's just say every now and then I crashed due to sliding in the gravel. Not good!! I think what changed me as a rider the most back then was my mate Dave helping me out every way he could. I'll never forget it, Thanks David!!
Have any advice or words of wisdom for up-and-coming riders?
Always keep true to what you enjoy the most about bmx, never let the way other people ride change the way you think or the things you want to try. Have fun and let the adventure take you places you never thought possible.
Favorite part of being a Pro rider?
The best part is just the experience of things you never thought possible and the places I've seen because of bmx. The friends will always be a major factor as well!
What do you think got you this far?
The only thing that gets you this far is determination and always wanting to better yourself. Family is amazing, plain and simple. Sponsor play a big roll too, with out them believing in you, some things would never happen.
What is the first trick you learned and which one do you dream about landing?
First trick I learned was a no footer or x up. There's so many tricks I dream of landing!!! Haha
