Skiing is my passion and my life, and I am super grateful for having the opportunity to travel the world competing and meeting rad people along the way.

I've been competing internationally for 6 or 7 years and recently finished my rookie season on the Freeride World Tour 2017 and I am currently ranked 6th male skier in the world.

Now my objective is to go hard in FWT 2018 as well as the FWQ 4* events and see if I can keep this thing rolling on for a while longer!

--------------------------------------------------------------

I started skiing in my home country of New Zealand when I was 2 and a half years old and have skied every winter since, and then some.

I got into competing at the age of 8 when I took up ski racing on the weekends at Mt Ruapehu in the North Island.

By the time I was 16 I decided that Freeride was what I really wanted to pursue, and made the switch from racing - best decision so far!

Originally growing up in Auckland, my family relocated to the small ski town of Wanaka when I was 13. 
A move which I attribute to my love of mountains and all things adventure and nature related.
