Describe a highlight moment from your 2017 IFSA season.

My favorite highlight moment from the 2017 IFSA season was Nationals at Grand Targhee. Shredding the trees, cliffs and jumps was amazing!

Where can you be found when you are not freeriding?

When I am not freeriding you can find me wake boarding, mountain biking, and ATVing in the mountains. If I am not in the mountains you can find me skateboarding, paddle boarding, or riding my horse.

What topic makes you fired up?

Powder Days

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

I would like to see more people encouraging each other to do their best and to take risks. I can help make this happen by always encouraging my teammates and other people around me.

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

Most snowboarders don't know that I am a cowboy and I love country music.

Freestyle Q!

Snowboarding is my passion and it takes a lot of dedication and hard work. Whether I am on the snow or training dryland at Progresh I give it my all. Thank you IFSA for being such a great association.
