You're new to the crayon box. What's your colour?
Black, it goes with everything. You can't go wrong with black.

Your next life is an animal. Which one?
Wolf. I love how they look. They are very sociable and intelligent animals.

Funniest thing that's happened recently?
I was bowling recently and as I bowled the person in the next lane threw their ball. Their ball hit the gutter, jumped over into my lane, hitting my ball causing me to get a strike!

What inspires you?
A bunch of things, mainly music, people and fashion.

Go-to outfit?
Black jeans. Simple.

What were you like in school?
Pretty similar to now really. Always see how much I could get away with, but got stuff done when it mattered.

Most embarrassing moment?
When I was in a car with someone who was in my favourite band, my phone starts ringing, which is when I realised my ringtone was from that band.

What music is currently on your playlist?
I made two playlists last week, Hip-Hop and Heavy Rock.

Best recent film?

Tell us something we don't know.
When I was a baby I was chosen to be a model in a women's magazine. It was for a road safety campaign, the actor who played the Doctor had to hold me whilst having photos taken. I pee'd all over him.

Current read?
Staying Strong: An Immensely Human story and Stephen Murray Life Story - 2nd time reading it.

Best travel experience?
Last year, hiring a car and travelling around New Zealand with my BMX, a tent and some mates.

Proudest achievement?
Either my 3 Ride UK front covers, or being able to have travelled the world living the life I have due to BMX.

Alternative career?
Professional Footballer or a Musician. Football would have been more likely.

Dream drive?
