What’s in the pipeline: Currently in Bali drinking pina coladas, but keen to see and ride with friends and everyone in Sydney for the street jam.

What hypes you up: A nice bowl jam at sunset with good mates and awesome music.

What drew you to AtlasCo: The loving support they give to all the team, embracing me to be myself and be unique riding. Everyone is just so easy going, and I feel so welcome, it’s like a family to me.

Most memorable moment scootering: The Canberra jam, helping organize it, watching everyone go for it, the adrenaline & excitement was insane. Was good to ride talk to riders I had been watching for years. After the jam it was a great night partying with everyone.
