“I like to partner with the world’s leading brands. That’s why I choose Bollé. Their eyewear is the best and I can rely on it in all conditions. Reliability is key for me, I need to know that my equipment on the mountain is going to hold up and give me the confidence to attack every corner. There can be no compromise on quality equipment and Bollé goggles are the best in the business. Additionally, they have some great styles so you look good while you are out there too!”

“I started snowboarding with my family at a young age. Snow was a passion for my family and it quickly became mine too. I began competing in all disciplines of snowboarding, but fell in love with Snowboard Cross at 15 years old. It took me a while to pick Boardercross as a discipline, but I chose it mainly because it combines all of the snowboard skills you pick up when you are out on the mountain riding with friends.
At 15 years old I won the Australian national champs and set my sites on making the World Cup tour. I competed all around the world at as many qualifying events that I could, making progress and learning lessons the whole way. I finally qualified and felt ready for the WC tour after winning back-to-back NorAm events in North America when I was 18. It was a lot to take in once I got on tour, but I made my first podium in Japan a year and a half later. In 2011 I won my first World Championship Gold, along with my first Crystal globe. I defended my World Championship title in 2013 and also won my second Crystal Globe. I have been to two Olympic games and carried the flag for Australia in Sochi 2014. I have just finished another solid season on tour, finishing number 2 in the world ranks. And I'm already looking forward to next seasons tour!”
