Freeriding Titles

Describe a highlight moment from your 2017 IFSA season.

Stomping my champs run in Kirkwood and realizing the effort I put into acheiving my goal of winning NORAMS and reaching that goal.

Where can you be found when you are not freeriding?

Biking, skating, camping, really any outdoor activity.

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

I would love to see economic strength worldwide, I hate seeing homeless or the less fortunate in need. I always give or help what I can when I can to help the lives I can.

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

I actually own a pair of skis and I am a pretty decent skier. I also like to disassemble the tiny little umbrellas from cocktails and try and read the Chinese newsprint.

Shout Outs

My friends and fellow free riders for always making competitions and training fun, my sponsors who have helped me through the seasons, and of course my parents and family members for supporting me and helping me through this career.
