History:

I began riding motorcycles age 5, aboard a PW50 when my elder brother and I raced mini motocross. The cost of moving up into the junior rankings competitively as we got older was too much for my family, so I waited until I turned 13 to give road racing a shot.

I started the budget form of road racing ‘buckets’ at the local go-kart track and after many very promising results and winning the ‘Most Promising Newcomer Award’ we decided to purchase a Suzuki RG150 and contest the highly competitive 150 street stock class on New Zealand grand-prix tracks.

I had a ball racing in the national championship races down south, where the streetstock class exploits grids of over 50 riders and after numerous wins and breaking a lap record we decided that travelling to Australia to race would provide me with some stronger competition to gain more experience and realise my potential. I finished 5th in the 2007 Australian motorcycle road race development association series.

After 3 seasons on a 125gp bike, finishing twice runner-up in the New Zealand Championships and taking lap records and both the NZ Grand Prix and Tourist trophy titles, I have now moved up to 600cc machinery.

In 2012 I spent 6 months living in Italy racing the cbr600rr cup (finishing 12th in the under 21 age category) and the Italian Womens Championship (where I finished 2nd). In 2013 I repeated another year in Italy, twice finishing on the podium racing against some extremely fast, experienced men.

I am very thankful to my family, supporters and sponsors who have given me these opportunities and who continue to support me in every way possible, I couldn’t do it without them and I believe this support will help me to get closer and closer to my goals!
