For me velocity is where its at. . . I love things that move. My parents used to say I would only ever build Lego if the project was something that had wheels. Since I found skateboarding almost ten years ago it has been a cross between an adrenaline rush and a science experiment to get it right. Our local skatepark has such a great crowd and I’m really lucky to have learned from one of the best and most patient guys around, Andy Anderson, who is also my Mentor. I’m also lucky that I’ve connected with Coastal Riders skate shop, helping new riders to learn and love skating as much as I do.

I am currently taking an online course from ‘Self Design’ and work as a set designer in the film industry. When I am not skating, I love to play my guitar and drive my car.

Competing again at this years World Round-Up is something I am stoked about. Being able to skate with talented skaters and legends from all over the world.
