I was born in Connecticut, USA but moved to England when I was three so have dual citizenship. I have always enjoyed maths and got into Loughborough University to do a Maths & Physics degree but chose to pursue my Freerunning career instead.

I’ve been breakdancing since I was 14 and was a member of the UK’s best crew Trinity Warriors, winning quite a lot of competitions. I am passionate about making videos for youtube and pride myself on good quality content. I now have more than 15.5 million views and over 65,000 subscribers to my channel.

I also have a small passion for Rubix Cubes. I own more than 20 different ones.

I’ve travelled the world doing Freerunning shows, from Sainsburys conferences to shows for the Sheikh of Dubai. However my favourite job so far was handing an award to Samuel L Jackson at the VGA’s in Vegas 2007. In 2009 I came 2nd and 3rd in the both Red Bull Art of Motion competitions and I managed to come 1st in the Barclaycard World Freerun Championships so am currently the World Freerun Champion.

  2. – It should be noted, first of all, that this blog post reefrs to the time needed to process videos *after* upload is done. Increasing upload speed relies in part on the speed of your particular connection, and my sense is that YouTube is not always optimal on upload speed, especially during hours of peak upload volume.

  3. i had the same problemUsed to take 90 mins to uloapd a 10min videoMy advise would be to increase your broadband speeds by upgrading your broadband dealI went from around 1mb Upoload to 6-7mb uloapd the difference is amazing i can now uloapd a 15 mins video in HD in around 10 mins MAX before takes up to 2 hours!
