I started skiing when I was three or four years old, after a couple years ripping around behind my older brother Charlie and friends, I started to unknowingly become addicted.

We pushed each other, and progressed fast in our little rat-pack. We'd always have so much fun on the snow, trying to copy and do something new (not much has changed).

I kept progressing over the years, with a bigger group of people around me, including different types of skiers with different styles. This hugely helped shape my skiing into what it is now.

The iconic NZ clubfields have played a massive part in my skiing and upbringing in general. Their relaxed atmosphere and small ski hill vibes were so cool as a kid, and the terrain gave me an amazing foundation I could tweak, and build on.
