Rider Bio

If you didn’t do the discipline you do, which would you choose next and why?
I would pick pipe, I loved it when I was younger and got to train in the old super pipe up at Big White. It’s a unique feeling going through the pipe and always puts a smile on my face.

 

Place where you were born: Prince George

Place where you live now:  Kelowna/ Vancouver/ nomad 

Favourite places to ride:  Big White ski Resort, Revy back country & Austria 

Favourite Food:  Sushi and cereal 

Future job - Top 3 choices:  Backcountry Pro, Snowbike Pro, Wood Artisan/Craftsman 

Life Goals - Top 3 goals:  Own a hairless dog and cat, be bilingual, be happy  

Why do you snowboard?  Snowboarding = happiness! Out in the mountains with your fav people slashing pow, or training on course with the team; there is just nothing that is more freeing and challenging at the same time. 

Favourite event and why? World Champs, it’s an important/high stress/high fun event and usually is the biggest and best course of the season.

Favourite item to travel with?  Headphones, wouldn’t be able to get through all the travel and long days without my music.

Best friend to ride with? My Brother Jaden, he’s such a talented rider and always pushes me. 

Favourite trick? Straight airs for the speed...

Favourite resort? Big White Ski Resort / home :)

Best resort no one knows about? BC Backcountry! (No it’s not a resort but there are so many amazing places to ride in this beautiful province)

Thing you like that everyone else thinks is shit: Brussels sprouts 

Thing that everyone else loves and you hate: Steak/lamb/meat in general hah

If you were not a snowboarder what would you be? Sad

Coolest thing you have done that not many people have? Other than the Olympics and other cheesy things probably getting to snowboard to school, perks of living on a ski hill.
