I was born in Motueka, a tiny beach town on the northern tip of South Island, New Zealand. During my teens I backpacked around Australia for two years and it was during this time that I got my first camera and the passion for imagery was awakened.
Moving to Switzerland at 22 I discovered snowboarding and ended up mixing my two passions. Three or four years later I managed to make this my full time occupation although I don’t really see it as a job most of the time.
I spend winters chasing the snow with the Volcom team riders and in summer I'm on my 36ft sailboat, with the goal being to sail around the world in the next 10 years.
