Freeriding Titles

  • 3rd Place FWQ 4* JAPAN, 1st Place FWQ 4* Crested Butte, 1st Place FWQ 4* Taos, 3rd Place FWQ 4* Kicking Horse, 2nd Place FWQ 4* Crystal Mountain (1st Place Overall FWQ NORTH AMERICA)

Describe a highlight moment from your 2015 IFSA season.

A highlight was definitely winning Crested Butte and Taos back to back after my 3rd place podium in Japan. Crested Butte and Taos are two of my favorite mountains and to win both events was really special. I also can't forget about my 2nd place finish at Crystal Mountain which solidified my spot on the FWT for 2018, hearing them announce my name in second was one of the most relieving moments of my entire career!

Where can you be found when you are not freeriding?

Usually in the terrain park. But in the summer I like to hang right by the beach... boy!

What topic makes you fired up?

Climate Change

What would you like to see change in the world and how can you make it happen?

I would love to see less hate and more acceptance. I personally try to be a living example of this in my daily life.

Tell us something about yourself that is unusual or little known.

This is my first season participating in all of the 4* events to try to get a spot on the FWT.
