I started ski racing when I was 8 but had my first day on skis when I was 3.
 
What are the reasons for having chosen it?

What is your main objective in your personal life?
To have fun with my family and friends and keep a part of my life that doesn’t revolve around skiing.
 
Why do you choose us as partner?
I think that Bollé is a great company that makes top of the line equipment and also looks after their athletes. These are the things I value in a partnership.

What do you like the most in our products?

I really like the full package, helmet, goggles, the lenses look great and are very good for skiing.

Do you have a particular habit, a ritual before a competition?

Listen to some heavy drum and bass music, and always try to find something funny so I’m laughing and not in my head to much.
 

What is your favorite competition spot?

It would have to be Sölden (so far…) or at home at Coronet Peak.
 
What is the best memory in your career?
My second place at World Cup Finals 2019, a bit of a surprise and an amazing day.  And also my first win at Sölden, at the World Cup Opening 2019/20.
 
What is your favorite place to rest?
At home in New Zealand or at a beach somewhere in Australia.
 
What is your favorite destination for holidays?
Anywhere warm.

Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, but also Original Nuttah 25 (shy FX).

Legends of the fall, Spy game and Wolf of Wall Street.
