Q What are your hobbies?
A Martial arts and weightlifting.

Q Did you go to gymnastics classes as a child or adult?
A Yes, I started gymnastics when I was young, maybe 4 or 5. I did gymnastics at my local leisure centre. I went regularly for around a year but then decided to pursue various other interests and sports. I started Free-running at around 10 years old and that became my main interest, also getting into Martial Arts Tricking and Freestyle Gymnastics which I have continued until now.

Q What are you enjoying most about Flair?
A I'm enjoying coaching the children and meeting the Flair families but also getting to know all the coaching team as I mentor them and make sure that our standards are always met.

Q Do you have any pets?

A
I have a 2 year old Cavapoo called Rosie and a rescue dog called Bertie who is also 2.

Q What's your favourite sports film?
A There are just too many to choose from! (I’m a BIG movie fan.)
Bruce Lee 'Enter The Dragon' - I always loved the philosophy that was portrayed in the film and obviously the awesome martial arts too.
'Rocky' movie franchise (any 'Rocky' film is great but the first is always a classic.)
'Ali' - Will Smith did an amazing job of portraying Mohammed Ali, one of my all time favourite sporting figures.
'The Karate Kid '- the original, not the Jaden Smith remake. I loved the idea of the old master taking on a disciple and teaching him with unorthodox methods that work perfectly when they all come together.

Q Who's your favourite gymnast?
A Nile Wilson - because he's so funny!
