Steamboat Springs, CO - 

Q. Who is your biggest role model?
A. Mostly my mum. She has guided and supported me through snowboarding from a very young age. 

Q. Do you have a signature article of clothing you wear when competing?
A. I always wear my XTM gloves when I compete – and a face mask. I guess you can call it a bit of a lucky charm, or a ritual. 

Q. How do you like to relax?
A. Working out, funny enough, is really relaxing for me. It calms my mind down and I’m only focusing on the exercise, nothing else. 

Q. What’s on your warm-up playlist?
A. A lot of music that has a bit of up beat. I listen to a lot of drum and bass like Sub Focus. I'm really into them right now. 

Q. Who are your sponsors?
A. Mark Adams Real Estate, Bolle, Virus Action Sport Performance, XTM, SISU Mouthguards, GNC Frankston and Orbit Fitness.

Q. If you weren’t a professional athlete, what would you want to be?
A. I would be an architect!

Q. How do you like to celebrate a victory? 
A. I'm not a big party person, but I would just chill out with my teammates. I'd be so tired after a long day of racing!

Q. What’s your favorite junk food?
A. Red Velvet Cake. I love it so much.

Q. Describe your perfect day.
A. Snowboard in the morning, surf in the afternoon and just hang out with some friends.

Q. What’s the most unusual gift you’ve ever received?
A. I haven't. But I've received a packet of soup in the mail. I have no idea where or who it came from. 

Q. Which three words describe you best?
A. Determined, humble and confident. (You could throw in a bit of a goof-ball too.) 

Q. Which song do you know all the lyrics to?
A. One Republic’s “Counting Stars” and Christina Novelli’s “Concrete Angel.”

Q. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A. I see myself with a bachelor’s degree in architecture, and going for my fourth Olympic Games.
