Date of Birth:
Colony BMX, Strictly BMX and I like to rep Primary, Afray and Tide Apparel.
How long have you been riding?
I started raceing bmx when I was 3 and I have been in to the freestyle part of BMX for probably 20 years now.
What got you interested in BMX?
As a kid I allways had a bike that was my way of getting around and allway had fun doing it. Then meeting up with other that were in to it as much as I was it just became a thing we did we were always out on our bikes cruising around building jumps and seeing what we could do.
Biggest influences in BMX:
My firends for sure. I got in to BMX way before all the BMX hype, before the internet when there was not a whole lot known about BMX so we didn’t have much to go on. We just pushed each other, we filmed a lot in the early days to so coming home after a session and watching the footage was always good insperation to push yourself to try thing and go bigger.
Where are you living at the moment? And where did you grow up?
I am currently living in Melbourne in a lovely little one bed apartment with my girlfriend. I grew up in Adelaide in the outer suberbs of Elizabeth.
What does a regular Saturday out on the bike usually consist of?
For me it starts with work in the morning at the bar with Kym Grosser, we finish at lunch time, quickly head home, shower and get changed then we meet up with the crew down at Prahran skate park have a little warm up roll pack the car and head off to film clips wether we road trip it out far or keep it local it’s always fun riding with the crew.
What are you doing for work these days?
I work in a night/day club on Chapel st (come party with me).
Top 3 places you’ve ridden over the years:
Sydney streets would have to be up there, soooooo many spots it’s endless. Barcalona and LA were amazing to see but hard to film because so many people have been and destroyed it. I would also have to say Canada: Awesome spots, good parks, proper trails and amazing people. Chill / beach in the city cheep beers, massive UNI’s had the best time there. Just picking 3 is so hard, I have had the best time and met the best people traveling and riding, every trip has been memarabal and a blessing.
What are your interests outside of Riding?
I realy enjoy graffiti / art / painting. I think it’s good to have another outlet so you dont burn yourself out and it keeps me sane through the injuries. Also i enjoy cooking, hanging with my girl and I may have a drinking problem.
Car you own/drive:
I drive a VX Commodore with a little bit of steez thrown in.
Tell us something about your local scene:
My local scene is just a bunch of chillers that all like to hang with each other, always lookout for each other but can drop hammers when necessary.
What motivates you to go out and ride all the time?
Just beeing out with my friends filming I always like to have a project I am working on. Sitting back watching the clips seeing it come together always motavates me to go out film more try bigger things.
Favourite place you’ve travelled to and why?
It would have to be Canada. I lived there for 2 years and it was a life changing experience I met some of the best people which are like family to me. I also meet my girlfrend there and we have been together for 6 years now. I filmed some amazing stuff there and it never felt like I was on a trip, I felt like I was at home.
Good meals to eat:
If I am out I love Asian food, all kinds. At home I love cooking simple meat veg meals like roast stakes, curries, chicken dishes but trying to make them fancy.
Give us some bands/musicians you are into these days:
I love Hip Hop, that’s what I am in to like ASAP, Eminem, old school stuff, OZ Hip Hop. But just lately I have been enjoying stuff like Of mosters and men, Nina Nesbitt. People with cool voices and good beats.
Favourite Colony product?
Besides my signature Teddy or Burna related products. I love the Official stem and the Wasp hubs are amazing; Clean, strong and roll like a dream, Alex’s seat is so nice, Chris Courtenay’s sproket is cool. Pretty much everything colony makes is on point.
What has BMX has taught you:
Pretty much everything about life, beeing a better person, having respect and beeing thankful for everything. BMX changed my life in a big way.
