Why I Snowboard: At first Snowboarding was an outlet for me to travel the world and see different mountain ranges, from hitting backcountry jumps, competing, or just moving through the mountains. Over the last 2 decades this career has shaped me and now my family’s year round winter lifestyle. Snowboarding is truly life for us.
Favorite Trick: backside Rodeo, any 180° depending on the terrain.
Height/ Weight: 6’, 175-185lbs depending on the Heli-belly
Stance: 25” wide, I’m originally goofy -18° on my left foot 15° right, but like to ride both directions equally.
