I’m a freeskier, photographer and short film short producer. I love freeride, I love freestyle, I love all sorts of alpine adventures with fun loving people. Whatever the conditions, I just love to ski and create beautiful & interesting imagery while shredding.
Born in Blenheim, New Zealand, I grew up on a high country sheep farm in the central province of Marlborough. At the local ski hill, Rainbow Valley, I was hooked on skiing at 5 years old. As a kid I never raced nor took lessons but was constantly on the hunt for speed and air.
In my last year of high school I made the move south to Wanaka because I heard students were able to ski 3 days a week. The following year I ventured for the first time to the northern hemisphere. I have skied and ventured as much as possible ever since.
To help fund our adventures my partner, Sophie Stevens, and I foundered Little Difference - a greeting card and paper goods company that plants 1 tree for every product sold - over 35,000 trees planted so far. So now we travel the World selling cards, and doing as many fun adventures as possible.
Sophie and I also do talent work as models for various outdoor brands including our sponsors like Icebreaker Clothing. If you are interested in using us for your photo or film shoots please see our Talent Work page and get in contact.
