Briefly describe yourself… When I’m not snowboarding, I really enjoy spending time in nature, going mountain biking, skateboarding, pick up shells on the beach. Later I will probably use my degree in Applied Ecology to be some kind of biologist or environmentalist.
Talk us through your average day… Waking up at whatever time depending of where I am, breakfast, meet up with some friends, riding until 2 or 3 and then go down, get changed and hang out some more.
