About me:

I started riding age 16 and my love of travel, photography and film making soon followed.  I spent a few years in Australia as an international student and my BMX was always at my side.  Once I came back to the UK I made the switch to mountain bikes - Downhill and Freeride felt like the only logical choice for me.

I ride because it’s my passion, a driving force, it’s a constant challenge and no two runs are ever the same. Everything about the sport just urges me to do it. The thrill of the speed or near misses. The feeling I get floating through the air. It’s the rush of moving forward while being on the edge of grip; knowing that I am truly pushing myself.  It’s the feeling of freedom; the tranquillity, the joy, the people I meet and the friends I have made.  I just love the fact it can scare me too. It makes me feel alive.

I love nothing more than sharing what I do with the rest of the world.  I’m still amazed when people recognise me from social media!
