The Aussie man of many talents. Rad snowboarder, business owner, industry personality and all round crazy person. He cruises the planet oozing style with a mic in one hand and a grenade in the other. With mates like Lil John and Rob Dyrdek and now residing in LA, it’s clear this Aussie isn’t living a typical snowboarder’s life. Dingo has been nice enough to set the time aside to have a chat, so let’s not waste any more time.
