"Hailing from Bendigo in Central Victoria, I got into mountain biking through my two older brothers and very supportive Bendigo Mountain bike club. I am the youngest of six children and with a big family natural competitiveness came easily. Whilst working towards my dream of becoming a professional mountain biker I have completed a bachelor of Exercise Science and Master of Physiology.


     I have been lucky enough to be apart of the Merida Motion team for 6 years now and experienced some pretty cool things on two wheels. Travelling has got to one of my favorite aspects getting to skip a fair few Aussie winters, whilst competing in Europe is what I call, 'living the dream'. I now choose my own personal sponsors and as of 2020 am working in Rehab as a Qualified Exercise Physiologist. I remain committed to my cycling aspirations, aiming to race as high as possible domestically, whilst targeting specific international events.
