Q/A

How and when did you get into snowboarding?
I started skiing at 2 and then by the time I was 7 I had
become quite interested in snowboarding. I made a deal with
my dad where I could rent and try riding for my birthday. I
never went back!

What’s the best moment in your career?
T here have been lots of awesome moments, my first
podium, my first X Games.My first double corks, watch my
little brother follow in my footsteps. All have meant a great
deal to me!

What’s the worst moment in your career?
Injuries for sure

What are you doing when you’re not snowboarding?
Usually taking care of everyday life, I like to spend what free
time I have exploring or biking around Colorado.

What gives you energy and lets you think about other things than snowboarding?
The thought of something new, being somewhere I have never been or doing something I have never done.

What’s the best advice you ever received?
“If you don’t know where you’re going any road will take you there” So make a plan and stick to it, but don’t be afraid to take chances and have fun along the way just keep the goal in focus.

Who inspires you?
Young kids who ride better then me haha

What inspires you?
That feeling of conquering something new or scary, it really motivates you to do more.

Name three things you are good at?
This sounds like a question that could come back to haunt me haha

Name three things you would like to learn?
I am horrible at playing any sort of musical instrument, I would love to learn that.

If you had to do one trick for an entire season, what would it be?
Tough one, probably a classic frontside air.

Who did you wish you were when you were a kid?
I didn’t want to be anyone but more like someone. I looked up to Danny Kass, Ross Powers, Jerry Tucker, Ryan Nyquist and others.

Where do you spend your time off?
Usually home in Breckenridge.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? And why?
Growing up in Vermont and moving to Colorado I believe I have lived in two of the most beautiful places on earth. But I can see my self living in New Z ealand or Switzerland.

What do you still want to accomplish in your career?
Lots, I want to have more success on the contest stage but I also want to film more and be more of a role model that younger shredders can look up too.

What would you do if you weren’t a professional snowboarder?
I could see myself working in a National Park or something to do with the out doors.
