My best party trick is… “Mum says, I’m a brilliant mimic” 

The geekiest thing about me is… “I swot crystals”

When I’m not training or on snow you’ll find me… “In the gym, going places with my camera or giving someone a fresh tattoo!” 

Guilty pleasure… “Vegan truffle chocolate” 

Best travel story… “I had a training camp in Dubai, yes you read that correctly Dubai! Got to the airport to check-in and they would not let me go as my passport was invalid within 3 months (had to be 6) so I had to get a flight to London, get a new passport all in one day then finally fly to Dubai!” 

Biggest fail… “Knocking myself out on a skateboard”
