Where are you from?
Date of Birth:
What got you into riding?
I always liked BMX but in my younger teenage years I skateboarded. Sometimes I would have a go on peoples bikes at the local skate bowl so I learnt a few basic moves. It wasn’t until I finished High School that I started going down to the local all the time on my BMX. I wasn’t aware of any kind of scene it was just some thing fun to do. Then one random day I decided to venture down to Beenleigh Bike Park and it just happened to be the day Clint Millar had organised his first rider run comps there. Was real stoked on it and they said they were having another comp soon so I practiced up for it and never stopped riding from there. That was twenty years ago.
What motivates you to go out and ride all the time?
Progression, riding new places , friends, videos, escapism, it can be lots of different things.
What style of riding do you enjoy doing the most?
I have always liked all styles. I go through phases alot. Always changing my bike up to suit different things.
Do you have any interests outside of riding?
I still skateboard off and on. Drawing & painting. Filming and editing videos. Travelling, especially Roadtrips !!
Favourite Colony product?
I would go with the Contour rim. Just a real strong light rim plus I named it, ha ha !!
What do you do for a job?
I am the Warehouse Manager at Colony BMX. Which involves unloading stock, packing orders, sales as well as anything else I can help out with like product photos, data entry, answering Facebook questions, product design, filming and editing. What ever else needs attention.

Tell us something about your local scene:
I wouldn’t say I really have a local scene anymore. I’ve been riding for so long I have been part of alot of scenes. Times change, people move on. Best part though is when you catch back up and ride with old friends. Always a good time too when I get to ride with any of the Colony Team !!
