"'Hailing from Bendigo, I've been riding bikes since I was a kid and never stopped. I'm the youngest of a big family and got into the sport through my older brothers, always wanting to keep up and never miss out.  

I enjoy riding a variety of disciplines, keeping the motivation fresh as I rotate between mountain bike, road and gravel racing. My favourite is no-doubt cross-country MTB as It encompasses components I enjoy most - being fitness, skills, adrenaline, nature and adventure.

I’ve been fortunate to travel the world racing my bike representing Australia at multiple Cross-Country World Championships and having been a National Champion as a U/23. I currently balance my cycling aspirations whilst working as an Exercise Physiologist, aiding people’s health with the prescription of exercise and education.

I've been riding for Merida Bicycles since 2015, a relationship I’m proud of, as I believe we share a similar passion for the sport. Merida creates bikes for the best teams in the world and even more importantly place a huge emphasis on the everyday rider, increasing participation and accessibility in the sport, whilst also promoting physical activity. 

I have lofty goals remaining, looking to target racing domestically and selective overseas events. I still have bucket list races to compete in and events to conquer in which I’ve finished runner up in. There is also the growing gravel scene, which sparks a natural interest for myself. Overall I will race in whatever I’m enjoying at the time and my natural competitiveness will take care of the rest."
