If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would you go? Somewhere good. I don’t know where that is because I’ve only been to Tyrol, Buckhill, and Vail.

Favorite Terrain: Snowy powder

First Time: Tyrol, it was fun, hurt my ass. My claim to fame is I pulled a 2 inch 360 my first day.

Is snowboarding ready for the Olympics? Whatever.

If you didn’t snowboard what would you be doing right now? I’m only snowboarding when school is out of session. Once I get my degree I think I’ll be more serious about riding.

What do you do when you’re not snowboarding? Crossword puzzles, gymnastics, diving, skating, backgammon, mudding.

Who most influences your style? My brother Jake, Jay Fusco, J2 (kinda).

Who do you ride with the most? I love riding with my brother, but it hardly ever happens.

If you were going on a trip and could only take five things with you (other than a change of clothes and your snowboard) what would those things be? Skateboard, backgammon, chess board, giant book of crosswords, The last of the Rings Trilogy, and that one thing that you know you’re going to forget, but can’t remember it before the trip. Oh yeah, and my laptop.
