If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would you go? Japan. They have the best powder in the trees & the Japanese don’t ride them for some spiritual thing. Else I wish I could ride Breckenridge and then go to the beach in the same day. Fantasy world.
Favorite Terrain: Pipe, Park, powder. I guess anything cause just riding your snowboard is damn fun.
First Time: Had an old Burton. In NH at King Pine for night skiing. 2 minutes up the lift & 30 seconds down & into the woods every time. Some guy told me to lean on my front foot…slammed into the ice. Funniest thing I’d tried, & it changed my life.
Is snowboarding ready for the Olympics? One day they’ll get it right. Once I cared about what FIS/ISF was doing. Now I just want to ride good stuff, pipes, contests, & have good judging. The Olympics are good, but the assc’s should have just waited for the 2002 Olympics to do it.
If you didn’t snowboard what would you be doing right now? I studied hotel mgmt. in school. Snowboarding changed that forever. I might be married, kids, or kids on the way & with a business. Looking back, it’s a good thing I’m snowboarding cause I’m a kid & will still live my life as a kid awhile.
What do you do when you’re not snowboarding? Chase girls, eat junk food, and watch the x – files. I also like to dabble in business, writing, base jumping into water and acting goofy.
Who most influences your style? Chad Otterstrom, Ryan Queen, Todd Richards, JJ Collier, all my friends in Breck.
Who do you ride with the most? Many a pipe days with JJ, Frank Wells, Todd, and Chad. I like going to contests and riding with all my friends on the tour. Its like a family reunion every two weeks.
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? 1)CD player 2) Toothbrush 3) Jimmy Hats 4) Skateboard 5) April 95 issue of Penthouse
Time of Day: All day I don’t sleep that much
Airline: United, but I have recurring plane crash dreams.
Animal: all, but dogs kick ass
