BIOGRAPHY
Learned to ski at the age of 6 on dry slope in North Wales and on family holidays. Age 8, moved to Chamonix and the following
year, strapped on a snowboard and joined the Chamonix Snowboard Club. Competed in a variety of disciplines all over the French Alps, the highlight being runner up in the French nationals in SBX. Started competing internationally and was selected for the GB Snowboard Team, won 3 consecutive British Championship titles in the overall category (first time age 13). Whilst doing my GCSE’S, I represented the UK at the Youth Olympics in Romania. Went on to study A level French, German, Psychology & Geography A-level whilst training & competing. Finally, at 18, I was able to snowboard full time and compete on the European Cup Tour and make my World Cup debut a year later. Since then, I finished 14th at the World Championships in 2017. Unfortunately, narrowly missed out on Pyeongchang due to a severe heel fracture 2 months prior.
