On a perfect day you’ll find me riding with my besties, charging some fresh pow, lapping a sunny park or jibbing a super fun piste, but I’d never ride the park in bullet proof conditions – I’ve broken too many bones
What is your UK home dome? – For the past ten years I’ve been been pretty nomadic and lived all over the place. I get a bit confused where home is!
What did you get up to last season? – This past year I’ve been living and working on the south coast of France, so I squeezed in as many weekends as possible in the Alps. Then I quit my job and caught the spring shred in Whistler, Canada.
Describe your riding style in ten words or less – Like a Golden Retriever
Roughly how many days a year do you get on snow? – It varies and there’s not been enough over the last few years, but I reckon I managed about 45 last season
What’s the best trip you’ve ever been on? – So many goods times. Tahoe, California stands out: a pimping pad, magical amounts of snow, Eddie the Chevie, Truckee Diner milkshakes, funshine jibby park laps and a bunch of superheroes
What was the last trick you learned? – Switch boardslide
What was your first ever snowboard set up? – Burton Sensation 155 with Burton Lexa bindings
What are your stance width and angles – and why? – +15, -15. I used to ride wide as it would go, but have recently narrowed my stance a few cm’s.
What one piece of advice do you wish you’d been given when you bought your first board? – You’re not going to know exactly what you like for your first board. Go soft and forgiving and as you ride more, you’ll figure out who you are.

What tweaks do you make to a new set up? I’m not to fussy – set up and go, go, go!
