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 French vice-champion 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, which was an inspirational multi-event. Studied French, German, Psychology & Geography A-level whilst training & competing. Finally, at 18, I was able to snowboard full time and compete on the European Tour and make my World Cup debut a year later.
