I started skiing 1 month after my 4th birthday, after I told my parents that I did not want them going on another skiing holiday without me. 

 

I learned to ski at Wycombe Ski Centre, just before it burnt down in October 2005. I then moved to the Hemel Ski Centre, in Hemel Hempstead.

 

I skied my first 'black' run in Tignes when I was just 5 1/2 years old.

 

I joined the Race Development Team in March '07,and was invited to race in the Hemel ERSA (East Region) race in April '07, 2 months before my 6th birthday - I finished 2nd in the Mini age group in 2007.

 

I had my first taste of racing on snow in Jan 2008 in Saas Fee, where I came 4th in an under 10's race, and competed in my first British Championships in Meribel at Easter 2010.

 

So far, I have skied in France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, England, Scotland and Czech Republic.

 

From 2008 - 2012, I raced for Wycombe in the LSERSA and CN summer race series.

 

In the winter of 2011/12 and I joined the SollSchiClub in Austria with whom I train and compete with during the winter season.

 

In May 2014, I was selected for the England Under 14 Squad, and raced for Team GB U14 in Jan 2015 in the Czech Republic.

 

In Feb 2015, I was invited to race in the Tirol Schulermeisterschaft Slalom. (Tirol Champs), and in May 2015 I was selected to the England Under 16 Squad, and the new Team GB, BSS Alpine Development Squad.

 

The hightlight of my skiing so far, has been the opportunity to 'fore-run' in last season's Austrian National SchulerMeisterschaft (U16 Championships).

 

I am currently in the BSS Under 16 Development Squad, looking forward to the coming season back in Austria.
