I first dabbled into the mountain biking world back in 2012 when I was just 13 years old. I was hesitant at first but quickly got hooked and there was no turning back. One thing turned to another and a few years later I was loving racing, thinking I was decent and riding fast until one practice day at Stromlo in October 2014. It all came unstuck and I was stuck in a hospital be for 6 weeks and my 16th birthday. Injuries suck and this one in particular kept me off all bikes for 12 months, leaving me with no option to get back into racing any time soon. Instead of sulking I wanted to still attend all the races I could - so I bought a camera just days after getting released from hospital. First event was the second annual Cannonball Festival, I was on crutches and my Mum wouldn't let me any higher up the trail than the bottom jump - despite that I still loved doing something which wasn't sitting at home being bored. In no time my attention quickly turned from racing to film and photography - I was just having fun creating what I thought was good at the time and not intending to make a career out of it. Fast forward to today and I have now been working professionally for the past 12 months since finishing school. I am doing what I love to do, I travel to some of the most scenic destinations to photograph mountain bikes, and most importantly I still get to enjoy riding my bike. It has turned out to be the most amazing thing to happen to me, as bas as that injury was, I extremely glad it happened as it let me to where I am today - enjoying life!
