I was born and raised in a small fishing village on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Growing up on such an incredible little Island I was always outside keeping active. I was never the kid in front of the tv or computer. It's no surprise I found surfing due to the rugged coastline, but the snowboarding story is an interesting one!
Like most board sports it all started off with skateboarding and when the winter hit us I'd take the trucks and wheels off my board and ended sliding around on skate decks in the snow. My friends and I would invent all kinds of makeshift bindings and our parents would drop us off at the foot of the Old Man of Storr for the day and we would hike up and build kickers and try Ollie over Sheep! After a family ski holiday in Andorra I got my first taste of proper snowboarding and I never looked back.
After over a decade competing across the Globe as part of the British Snowboard Team I have been very fortunate to have traveled to many amazing countries, cities and lived in Finland, France, Switzerland, Austria, New Zealand and now based permanently in California with my family where I continue to chase perfect waves and ride some incredible mountains.
