If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would you go? Somewhere tucked away in B.C., Canada with lots of powder and bro’s.

Favorite Terrain: Everything except the flats, preferably soft like powdery things.

First Time: With Jim Hale on a couch, Craig Kelly was on a video in front of me.

Is snowboarding ready for the Olympics? Yes and no. Hooray for the athletes who’ve worked for it, but it kind of takes away some other aspects of snowboarding, which I think truly built our sport.

If you didn’t snowboard what would you be doing right now? Something outdoors with animals.

What do you do when you’re not snowboarding? Skateboard, mountain bike, golf, surf, run and play with my dog, stare at the sky, hang with my family. (not in that order)

Who most influences your style? A few different boys. Some are Canadian, some are American, some are European, and Barrett Christy.

Who do you ride with the most? Barrett, Mikey Leblanc, Jason Gerardi, Vail bro’s, Canadian bro’s, Michelle Taggert, Jake Blattner, man the list goes on.

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? Books, sunscreen, art things, camera, and my dog.
