STORY

I grew up in Wales UK and got into Skating when I was 11. I started playing Inline Hockey for a local team and then ended up playing for Wales. Whilst out one day, I saw this guy doing some crazy tricks and I thought "I want to do that." that guy was 'Richard Taylor'. He completely inspired me to turn to aggressive inline skating and he became my friend as well as an inspiration. I looked for and took any chance to skate thereafter. My dad reminds me how I would skate the rail down the stairs!

In 2005 I took the chance to move to Liverpool being sponsored by Rampworx skate park and getting a job as a coach. I ended up coaching Skating there for 10 years. That year I came 2nd in the British Inline Championships & won the Richard Taylor Memorial trophy the following year.

'Life' then took over with needing to work and moving around the city bringing me to today - settled once again in Liverpool - with a focus back on my skating.

Along the way, I did some big tricks, learned to always wear a helmet, started my own clothing line 'That Rolling Brand' with my business partner and sponsored my own riders. I coached at roller disco, appeared in a TV programme demonstrating how to Skate (The Science of Stupid, UK) and worked in a skatepark at a youth centre. 10 years on it was time to focus back on my skating and hopefully, with my passion for the sport and K2, bring a whole new generation into inline skating.
