i ski for tommy

A few months ago I jumped on board with Mark Chicchiello as an ambassador for the new "I Ski For Tommy" foundation.

Tom Mathias, a talented ski racer and great friend, passed away on January 6th 2009 at the young age of 23 from skin melanoma. Tom was far from any ordinary individual. He was  intelligent, studying both commerce and arts and Melbourne University, as well as spoke fluent French and was a talented athlete. More importantly, he was an inspiration and mentor to me, as well as a great teammate and friend.

Along with Mark, (founder of the program) the three athlete ambassadors include myself (ski cross), Michael Rishworth (alpine) and Daniel Portelli (snowboard cross).
