The Australian winter and alpine environment is one of the most unknown and underappreciated sectors within the topography of Australia. We are a summer obsessed country and where I grew up in Queensland, I was just getting sweatier and sweatier. Since experiencing winter in Finland as a teenager I have been fascinated by the way winter works. I unknowingly had fallen in love and decided to dedicate my time to snowboarding year-round and experiencing all that winter had to offer.

I worked all night in the Slopes Grooming department and rode all day. I started touring the back country and exploring our Alpine environment and realised how valuable it is to every living thing. The links between summer seasons and winter snowfalls, temperature trends and influencing factors all pushed me to research and learn more about winter and how I can help prolong it.

I started taking photos and sharing the stoke for our amazing Alpine environment, spreading the message of vulnerability and fragility to raise awareness across society so we can make a positive change. You’ll find me out there on the windiest days and the coldest of nights with a passion to learn, create and promoting change for a greener, positive future.
