Date of Birth:
Colony BMX & Verve Footwear.
How long have you been riding?
Since I was about 14, so nearly 9 years!
What got you interested in BMX?
Well my old neighbours in the street I used to live in, would build jumps near home & would sneak off to Morayfield via train. I would follow them most of the time and came across a whole new world.
Where are you living at the moment? And where did you grow up?
I currently live in Murrumba Downs, Tasmania is where I grew up (that’s where most of my family is from) but I would move fairly regularly growing up. In places like NSW, South Australia and QLD.
What are you doing for work these days?
I’m currently an apprentice Plumber, nearly finished my time actually. Basically counting down the days till I’m a tradesman.
Top 3 places you’ve ridden over the years:
When I was 17 I travelled to the states & stayed at Woodward West for a couple weeks which was definitely something I’ll always remember, I gotta say I am addicted to Alexandra Headlands latest upgrade as well as Underwood. But I can never go past Morayfield.. Haha!
What are your interests outside of Riding?
I love poker! I tend to play that fairly regularly, but if I’m not doing that I would be watching Rugby League or online gaming.
Car you own/drive:
I drive a black 2 door Hilux, basically my work car.
What motivates you to go out and ride all the time?
Well these days it’s purely the vibes that are at the places I ride at lately, I thoroughly enjoy just hanging with my mates riding my bike. But at the same time I like pushing myself to try new tricks and just that feeling when & if I pull the trick.
Favourite place you’ve travelled to and why?
Well my partner and I travelled Europe, June last year. I would have to say Prague, Czech Republic was my favorite place we had visited our entire trip.
Good meals to eat:
I can never say no to Nandos. Haha!
Give us some bands/musicians you are into these days:
I listen mostly to dance music, have for many years now. So artists that include Bryan Kearney, Dan Stone, Marcus Santoro (which I don’t think many people would know about)
Favourite Colony product?
Colony’s free coaster is definitely something I enjoy the most, opened up a whole side of riding that I hadn’t discovered before. I can’t see myself running a cassette anytime soon.
The usual thanks…
I would like to thank my parents for supporting me from the very beginning, never telling me to stop regardless of the injuries I would come home with.
I would like to thank my girlfriend, Kaitlyn. I had hit some heavy health barriers this year which made it hard for me to get to places/be able to ride my bike. But she drove me every single time I wanted to go somewhere & would be behind the lens telling me to get things done.
I would like to thank Verve Footwear for their support this year too, stoked to be apart of the team & the good times ahead.
I would also like to shout out every morayfield local that I see nearly every week, you’re all legends
