What is your occupation? Recruitment Rep

What made you want to become a balloon pilot?I was always that little kid screaming, “MUM, BALLOON!” when the fiesta was on. It was only a natural progression.

What has been your best flying experience to date?Flying over the foothills near Hororata with a bunch of other balloons. Fantastic scenery with a very frosty morning.

If you could fly anywhere in the world, where would it be?I wouldn’t mind attending the Bristol event at some point, maybe Saga as well.

What is your ultimate goal in ballooning?Have fun and be safe.

What is the coolest thing about your balloon? It’s been completely rebuilt with new fabric but existing features from the original balloon.
