Why do you love snowboarding?
It gives me a huge adrenaline rush and I love the challenge of pushing myself to land that new trick I've been dreaming about.
How did you get into it?
I started skiing at the age of four at Bromley Dry Ski Slope! I then got noticed on a Summer camp in the US which lead to me picking up my first sponsor Roxy.
Sochi Winter Olympics highlight?
Dropping in at the Semi Finals, and seeing the crowd at the bottom! It was surreal, like WOW I am really here at the Olympics.
I love the Vans Penken Park in Mayrhofen! It has such a fast lap and epic jumps.
What are your other passions?
Surfing, keeping fit, cooking, hanging with friends and family!
Have you ever tried skiing?
Yes I was a skier at first!
Who are your heroes?
My friends that inspire me to keep pushing myself on my snowboard. Jenny Jones, Cheryl Maas, Torah Bright.
After Australia this summer, it is back out to Europe. Can't wait to get back on snow!
