What I ride?
I ride a 2018 Rocky Mountain Slayer Carbon 90!
Why get creative?
My passion for all things digital began in my teenage years when I started out making movies of the video games I used to play. From there I used those skills I developed and carried them over to create gopro movies of the sports I enjoy such as mountain biking and snowboarding. My drive to create something enjoyable and inspiring grows with each project, and I’m always thinking of how I can improve on the next one. I decided to invest in high-quality equipment to allow me to take it to the next level and expand my skills.
What is your favourite place to ride in WA?
My favourite place to ride is Linga Longa Bike Park! There’s such a diverse range of trails with incredible scenery. In the past 2-3 years they’ve made some great improvements to the facilities with a cafe, toilets and shuttles. It’s a great experience for all riders!
What’s next on your bucket list on places to ride?
I would love to head down south to Margaret River and explore the new “flowy” Compartment 10 trails. I’ve heard great things about them! Outside of WA, it’s my dream to travel to Queenstown NZ to ride at their Skyline Bike Park. Having spent a winter there snowboarding, I’d love to check it out in summer as there are heaps of trails and amazing scenery.
