From interviewing Metallica for my first role at Big Cheese; jet setting around Europe for Document Snowboard; reviewing music festivals in Iceland for Metal Hammer; to writing celeb gossip for More; I love my job! But boardsports and travel remain my biggest passions: so I’m stoked to add Cooler to my CV.

My biggest rush: huge powder turns, sticking a trick for the first time, cold waves, learning to wakeboard, live music and falling in love

My greatest inspiration: Brandon Boyd; super polite, humble, intelligent, creative, multi-talented and gorgeous! So, yeah you could say I had some serious butterflies when I interviewed him.

My favourite summer destination: Wanaka NZ, secret Cornwall spots or Hawaii (in my dreams!)

My favourite quote: “It is better to travel well than to arrive." Buddha

Before I die I want to: Take an around the world trip, live in Japan, try to be bi-lingual, cruise the Amazon, run a marathon, sky dive, write a book, have a family and die happy.
