What’s been going on?
Well, a lot has changed for me lately. Two years ago I wasn’t working, just living on the small amount of money I earned from doing BMX shows and from my sponsors. I was staying at my mum’s in Essex and didn’t own a vehicle nor a license. While there’s nothing wrong with any of these things, and I had some of best times living like this, things started to change.
After working on the Build It project with Mike King at ROM, I had the opportunity to start working at Fearless Ramps. They build and maintain skateparks all over the country and fortunately this soon turned into a full time job. For this I feel grateful, it’s provided me with the opportunity to work within an industry that my life has revolved around for the past 15 years.
“The scene here is unlike any other scene in the UK, there’s just so many motivated riders…”
During this time I met my girlfriend, Channy, and started to spend more and more time in Brighton. After about a year or so, I decided to move down here permanently, which has been amazing. The scene here is unlike any other scene in the UK, there’s just so many motivated riders. We ride every day and are all keen to get out to new spots and parks every weekend. Riding bikes and having a fun at its purest… Simple.
