Hometown?

Whistler, BC

How did you get into Skiing?

I trickled down the on snow disciplines in search of something... From a snowboard, to race skis, to mogul skis, now to slopestyle and pow skis. I live free, so it wasn't too hard for me to find the "free" in "freestyle".

What is your favorite shred spot?

Whistler Bowl for pow, and Black Park on Blackcomb resort.

Backcountry, Park, or Street?

Backcountry and Park

If you could have dinner with 3 people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?

1. Pamela Anderson, just a legend.
2. Moses, I really want to know what really happened 2000 years ago.
3. No 3rd option, I pounce on dinner opportunities when I get them.

What are your goals for this season?

Top 25 AFP ranking. Get tons of media content out through episodes, contests, and social media.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

Tony Hawk, pretty simple... He isn't strapped to his board, rolls on 4 mini wheels, airs 10 ft from a wood pipe (half of one anyways), and still stomps The 900. Skiing can learn from a future spinner like that.

What are 3 things you like to do outside of Skiing?

Snowboard, Skateboard, Trampoline, mainly all as training tools but also great hobbies.

Who are the top 3 bands/artists you're into right now?

The Weekend, Kygo, EMC

What sets you apart?

I believe my background of several disciplines and playing on trampolines gives me a good kick start. Even though i only started competing at age 21 in Freestyle skiing, having an acrobatic bouncy past is keeping me fresh with ideas.

What advice would you give kids that want to make in your sport?

Learn how to bail safely as young as possible. Triple corks are so last year.
