How did you get into snowboarding: I skateboarded when I was a young buck and loved watching the snowboarders rip it up at the local ski hill. So naturally my next move was to shred as well.

What do you love most about snowboarding: The freedom to express myself through my riding and the ability to go so many places. I love being in the mountains and connecting with Mother Nature and her elements. 

What are you most excited for this season: The drops, the snow, the product and just getting out there.
