Where did you come from?

I’m from a pretty small town in Central Queensland called Blackwater, born and bred!

How old are you?

I’m 29 years old

Which BMX rider (dead or alive) do you admire the most?

I admire too many riders just to pick one. Too many good people out there.

Best Country or city or town you have traveled to?

The best place I’ve ever traveled would be Chile in South America. The place is wild and the riding there is awesome such a crazy culture.

The craziest BMX story (riding/party/anything)?

They're definitely a few crazy stories and it’s hard to pinpoint just one so I’m going to say just living in the Christensen Street House in Brisbane with Wilton and Daymo. Shit would get outta hand partying and riding.

If you didn't ride what would you be doing?

If I didn’t ride I’d probably be caught up in the system with the rest of the suckers.
 
 Do you have a day job?
I do still work full time as a diesel mechanic, I do really love it which makes it easy and I guess it allows me to travel so much like money-wise. Best Trade ever, ask Wilto!
 
If you had to choose one place to ride for the rest of the time, where would it be?

If I had to choose one place to ride for the rest of my time, I’m going to just say drop me in Colorado and that will do.

Best BMX moment you have had on your bike?
Best BMX moment would probably be doing that drop to spillway hill bomb into the Gap reservoir for that Fit Bike edit.
 
If you could do one trick only for the rest of time, what would it be?

Probably could deal with doing turndowns for the rest of time.

If you had to listen to 3 albums for the rest of your life what would the soundtrack be?

The three Albums, that’s hard man. Probably Acid king lll, Cosmic Psychos Glorious Bastards. That would probably do actually

What’s the most influential BMX DVD you have watched?

Most influential BMX DVD hands down would be Criminal Mischief

What was your favorite section on that DVD?

Favourite section in that DVD is Marven Lottery

Finally, Did you ever think picking up that bike all those years ago would have turned into a life long obsession?

No way did I think riding a BMX would turn into a life long obsession but I’m so stoked it has! I thank my bike every time I go ride.

Thankyous?

Big thanks to Lux,T-1, Vans, Dead leisure, good transition with pool coping. Definitely all my mates I ride with, they make it 10x better haha!
