MEET THE TEAM
HOMETOWN: Gold Coast, Queensland
DAY JOB: Professional Stuntrider and Action Sports Athlete
RIDING / DRIVING SINCE: Pro since 1997. I entered and won the Australian Stunt Riding Championships back in 97 on my Kawasaki KR1S 250. I beat the European Champion at the time which really inspired me to take my riding serious. So I quit my Motorbike Apprenticeship in Brisbane to follow my dreams. It's hard work and I honestly work 7 days a week, but I love what I do and the people I meet along the way. I'm incredibly grateful thats for sure.
FAVOURITE TRICK: Knee scraping wheelies and rubbing panels with Kents drift car
HOBBIES: Boxing, drifting, stunting, jetskiing, boating, chasing my 2 kids on mini bikes, Polaris off-roaders… and snail farming
IN YOUR iPOD: Macklemore, Flume and Bliss n Eso
TASTIEST FOOD: Definitely Chicken Palmy's. My wife always says I'm going to turn into one-one day lol. Oh and cheesecake. Don't ask me to share or its a flat out NO!
BIGGEST CRASH: Crashing my SST in Detroit wins hands down. It ripped open my jaw, shattering all my jaw and mouth bones. I also lost 9 teeth, fractured my T1, had bruised lungs and a traumatic brain injury. It took 18 months to re-build my mouth so I could finally get a new set of pearly whites and enjoy a steak! God, it was good too.
