A little trouble maker always getting into to trouble.
I got a job in the French Alps when I was 18 and never looked back. I landed my first back flip after a couple of days on the hill.
Absolutely Everything Skiing is my life!
I started Skydiving because of an old friend, I needed a lowish Impact sport while I recovered from all my injuries so I could still get my adrenaline rush, but the real reason is so I can eventually base Jump with skis on or a wingsuit. I have 150+ jumps now so after Everest I will take my skills in the sky to the mountains and combine both.
Next year I’m gonna start competing with freestyle skiing again. I’m going to get a coach and really push my freestyle skiing and compete in the FWQ. The world tour and Olympics is another dream of mine
It’s the highest. I like to set targets that are out of my reach from the start.
I have been injured for the last 6 years I’m finally fit so now is the time. I ride an R1 and Harley Davidson motorbike, jump out of perfectly good airplanes, ski off of perfectly good pistes with huge cliffs and high avalanche risks… that’s why, because cause you never know when I’m gonna get injured again and now I’m stronger than ever both mentally and physically.
I have so much passion for the snow, a lot of my friends are supporters of Snow-Camp, I love how you’re changing peoples lives through skiing and snowboarding and I know for fact the mountains change people for the better because I’m living proof of that… so I want to help with by being a part of the Snow-Camp story and showing everyone what we are capable of.
Training is going well. I’m doing the very best I can whilst working such long hours at the moment at sea level but I’m feeling good and confident my altitude mask is helping.
I have received a pro deal from Patagonia thanks to the support from Kieran from Tignes spirit, consistent support from Craig Smith at Dragon Alliance who continually kits me out with the best of the best Dragon eye wear, I’m super proud to an ambassador. My good friend Harry Mitchell Thompson has been battling all over the industry to get me support and we received lots of mountaineering equipment from Ellis Bringham which was a huge help.
Outdoor food are going to provide me with award wining dried food to help me push for that summit. Not to mention fantastic training from Terry Walker who has passed so much knowledge to me via his vast experience in mountaineering.
I feel incredibly lucky to have the support.
The more people that know about Snow-Camp and my Everest attempt the greater the impact, so I’m grateful to the entire Snow-Camp community for getting behind the challenge. I’ve set myself a fundraising target of £20,000 and would love for as many donations as possible to help me change the lives of as many more inner-city young people as possible.
