Weight: 165 pounds

Home: Lake Tahoe, California

Roots: Jonestown, Texas

Sponsors: K2, Bonfire, DC, Smith, Air Blaster, Level, Pro-Tec

Stance: Goofy, 22 inches wide, with fifteen degrees on the front foot, and negative-six on the back, set one inch back from the tip.

Boards: K2 159 Quaw Quaw Wild Style for cliffs, powder, freeriding, and kickers, and the 154 Quaw Quaw Wild Style.

Best trend: I’m biased, Air Blaster 100 percent—it’s true, though.

Riding style: Expressive, ever-changing, evolutionary.

Quote: “I snowboard to clear my head, and I also snowboard for a living. It’s a tough balance, but I think I’m figuring it out as I get older. I enjoy snowboarding more every time I get a chance to strap in for myself.”
