HERE'S THE STORY...
Why is this journo so wobbly?
So I was basically living the life; winter in the mountains and summer on the beach. Not a single worry in life!
Then in November 2010, I managed to fall 26ft through a roof in Camden, London.
Six weeks in a coma and when I woke up I couldn't walk, talk or do anything really!
I spent about seven months in hospital, doing loads of Physio, Occupational Therapy and Speech & Language Therapy.
I was back on my skis a year and a day after the accident and skiing is still easier than walking (pretty cool!)
Before the bang on the head I was qualified to teach windsurfing, sailing and skiing. Because my balance/walking isn't good enough to go back to teaching, I decided to retrain as a sports journalist.
Since I graduated, in summer 2018, I have written for Newschoolers.com, Fall-Line, Downdays, Armada Skis and many more! From home in Chamonix, I have travelled to Switzerland, Austria and Sweden. I have reported on events like the Freeride World Tour and Audi Nines and interviewed the very best free skiers in the world.
