North Vancouver, BC
How did you discover your talent? What got you started?
I started mountain biking around two and a half years ago when I did an Escape Adventures camp. It was my first time ever riding a trail and I found myself clearing the black diamond trails like all the other kids, who had been riding for years. In 2021 I started riding bike parks a lot more and really progressed. I was able to hit my first prolines and some of the biggest drops of my life!
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I am still a kid, but I have always wanted to be a professional athlete. Although the sport sometimes varies, to this day I am still trying to figure out what I want to do in the coming years!
Who was your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspirations are EWS racer Daniel Shaw and DFX coach Dennis Orr. They helped me gain so much more confidence when riding faster and sending new features.
What makes you keep innovating and pushing your skills to new heights? What’s the intrinsic driver or motivation?
Riding with others that are a little faster and more advanced than I am helps me to progress and get faster.
So far, what has been your favourite highlight of your career? An achievement? A specific moment?
A highlight of my career would have to be the Coast Gravity Park BC Cup DH race.
In regards to your career, where do you want to be in 5 or 10 years?
I Love to edit and film so if I can incorporate that into my riding I think that would be really cool.
In terms of healthy habits, what are your thoughts on the current beverage options out there? (I.e. Energy Drinks, high sugar drinks etc)
I try to avoid them because they just give me a short boost of energy and have so much sugar. I’d rather have fuel for a whole day and stay healthy.
How does Wize fit into your current lifestyle? And why do you choose Wize?
I think staying healthy is key to success and Wize is a good way to have a cold iced tea while still being healthy.
What are the next projects coming down the pipeline?
I am hoping to compete in the 2022 BC Cup DH series next year and really see what I can do!
What’s your favourite flavour of Wize tea? When do you typically drink it?
Grapefruit would have to be my favourite flavour. It's great to drink before a big bike park day.
