What sparked your interest in climbing and how long have you been climbing?


I have always had a passion for climbing, when I was younger I used to climb the trees in my backyard all the time. I was first introduced to the sport at age 8, I had a party at (Hangdog) my local gym. I instantly fell in love with the sport after being able to rainbow up the steep overhang. I have been climbing for over 3 years now and this is my third year competing.


What is your home gym?


Dynomite and Hangdog in Wollongong but I also train at Nine Degrees with First Ascent.


What are you proud of achieving so far and what are your goals?


I’m very proud of how I climbed at Nationals this year, placing second in boulder and lead, henceforth making the Australian Climbing team. My goal is to do as well as I can at my first international comp and hopefully make semi-finals.


Do you have any sponsors?


Dynomite Indoor Climbing Gym in Wollongong.


Who are your Idols?


I admire Alex Honnold and Monique Forestier.


Fun fact


I could tie into a rope to scale a wall before I could tie my shoelaces.
