How did you get into Snowboarding?

Well I first started skiing when I was about 12, did that for 2 years... Then, after watching Shawn White do his thing, I decided to give Snowboarding a try. Never looked back since.

What is your favorite shred spot?

That's tough... I Love the Alaskan backcountry, and Snowbird out in Utah, but after growing up going to Wolfcreek, CO that has kind of turned into my go to spot.

Backcountry, Park, or Street?

Backcountry, no doubt! 

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

My grandpa, because of the impact he had on my life growing up. Jesus Christ, because how awesome would that be? And also.. Kobe Bryant. Random choice I know, but that man's strive for greatness is unmatched.

What are your goals for this season?

Hunt down all that fresh chowda that I can! Also, continue getting better at the sport of course.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

Once again, it's gotta be Kobe Bryant. His work ethic is just insane.

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

Ah man, I like to do everything I can that includes an adrenaline rush. I have a Yamaha R6. Cliff jumping. Most definitely traveling, every chance I get.

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

Man, I listen to just about everything (minus pop, and country). Last 3 artists on my iPod though..Martin Garrix, Marshmello, and Steve Aoki

The Lil Smokies (local Montana bluegrass band), SOJA, and Tribal seeds.

What sets you apart?

Hm, apart from others? I'm just weird. That seems to be working out for me so far.

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

Never stop pushing for what you want, never stop working for it. That pertains to anything in life, I believe you can accomplish anything you want, if you work hard enough. I mean, I'm now a sponsored snowboarder... from Oklahoma. Go figure.

Other sponsors / supporters?

No other sponsors yet, but I have pretty awesome support from family and great friends, and of course my girlfriend.
