What do you do at TransWorld SNOWboarding

I manage all video related content for twsnow.com. From our own video franchises to working with our video partners.

Where are you from?

Breckenridge, Colorado.

How did you get into videography?

Honestly, I was really in to film making at an early age. My parents got me a tiny hi-8 camera for Christmas one year, and my friends and I would make little movies and skits all the time. I didn’t have a computer to edit anything, so it was all edited how you shot it. One day I snuck into a bar with a bunch of my friends to see the premier of A.O.D.  I was blown away how bad ass snowboard movies were and how the movie just made me want to snowboard. Next thing ya know, I was standing in the park filming my friends with Role Model Productions.

How long have you been snowboarding for?

16 years.

Where is your home mountain?

What’s your favorite snowboard video and why?

The Resistance.  I guess because that just seems to be my go to video to watch. But there is really too many to name, just whatever your in the mood for that day. Its like which genre do you feel like watching on Netflix, one day I love watching the Wildcats, the next That’s It That’s All.
