How would you describe your style as a Parkour athlete?

I love to be creative and also connect lines really well. I do a bit of everything.

What is your favourite aspect of the sport?

The joy of completing and sharing challenges with friends.

When you are not training Parkour how do you fill your time?

I’m a gymnastics and Parkour coach, and also I tend to challenge myself to grow in other areas in my life.

Is Parkour your full-time job and If not what do you do on the side?

It’s not a full-time job. I also coach and write programmes.

Within parkour are you pushing towards any goals or challenges?

I want to have an impact on the sport, I want to contribute to the growth of Parkour and pioneer new styles and moves.

If you were not able to choose parkour what other sport would you like to pursue toward a professional level?

I would have loved to have done gymnastics at a high level. My family were too poor for lessons when I was young. But I’m glad it lead me to Parkour.

What is your favourite part of being a part of Motus?

The friends I’ve made from it and the opportunity’s it’s provided me.

What are your favourite and most memorable trips you have been on with Motus and are there any places you wish to go too in the future?

The America tour was insane. Personally I think it would be so good to do a team video in Budapest.

Motus is a collective of very close and good mates but is there anybody in specific within Motus you find yourself working with the best?

I feel like I work best with everyone really.

Where would you like to see yourself and Motus within the next 5 years?

I’d like to see myself as a wiser more mature and confident athlete with many attributes. And for Motus to grow to a point where it can support athletes financially.

What is your taste in music?

All over the place but nothing makes me feel more positive than some 80’s funk.

What is your favourite food?

Pasta and cheese

What is your favourite piece from the new Sole Destroyer collection & why?

The Sole Destroyer T-Shirt
