How was the FWQ season for you this year?
"I couldn't be more excited to be competing on the Tour next year. The FWQ season was an interesting one this year. I had a great time travelling around competing, and finally felt like I found consistency in my skiing. I was surprised to win in Kicking Horse, it just happened to be my day I guess. I'm going to miss all the FWQ friends next year, but this is the goal, right?"

What are you up to this summer preparing for FWT? 
"I am going to be doing some summer classes at CU Boulder trying to finish up my degree in Architectural Engineering. I will also be working at CERES Greenhouse Solutions, an energy efficient and sustainability focused greenhouse designer based in Boulder, CO."

Anyone you look up to or inspires you? Anyone you look forward to competing with on FWT?
"As far as fun outside activities go, I love climbing and mountain biking and will be doing that as much as I can. I also love spending time in the gym getting stronger and fitter for all the activities that I love doing (including skiing). I look up to everybody on the Tour. I have a lot of respect for anyone who drops into the face on comp day. I'm incredibly excited to compete against everyone and learn from others throughout the season!"
