Watching X games on ESPN and playing Dave Mirra Pro BMX on PS1.

Where are you living at the moment? And where did you grow up?
I’m living in Churchill at the moment but grew up in Morwell which is 10 mins away

What does a regular Saturday out on the bike usually consist of?
After my usual sleep in til about lunchtime I’ll get up and head to the local or wherever everyone is riding and then from there we might hit some other parks or just chill at the local all day!

What are you doing for work these days?
Boiler Making full time.

Top 3 places you’ve ridden over the years:
Belconnen is definitely one of my favourites, but also all the other skateparks in Canberra are amazing! Anywhere on the Gold Coast, there’s so many good parks up there! And lastly the Adelaide city trails are so fun!

What are your interests outside of Riding?
Snakes have always interested me and I’ve recently started keeping them, I have 4 at the moment! I also enjoying playing up on the weekends with mates, and getting tattoos!

Car you own/drive:
Holden Stato beast! Haha.

Tell us something about your local scene:
There’s not a lot of riders out my way but usually we get most of the riders to meet up and ride wherever, always a good laugh and fun people to ride with!

What motivates you to go out and ride all the time?
Seeing crazy web edits usually gets me motivated or just knowing that I’m gonna ride a fun park or with good people gets me pumped!

Favourite place you’ve travelled to and why?
I haven’t travelled out of Australia yet so I would say probably the Gold Coast. It’s just so nice up there!

Good meals to eat:
I could easily live off Hawaii 5.0 wraps from Schnitz!

Give us some bands/musicians you are into these days:
In Hearts Wake, Parkway Drive, Amity Affliction, The Ghost Inside, Karltheband.

Favourite Colony product?
Probably Wasp Hubs because they sound amazing!

What has BMX taught you:
BMX has taught me so much! I try to live my life the way I ride my bike; Care free and doing whatever the hell I want haha.
