Favorite riding story if you have one?
My favorite story is always racing my father down the mountain and beating him every time.

Why do you love to snowboard?
I really love to be outdoors in the mountains. I love riding with my friends and having fun. I’ve met so many new friends through snowboarding. I love the feeling of flying through the air and the freedom of it. I like that I get to express myself through snowboarding. It’s the best feeling when you get a new trick you’ve been working on.

When you aren’t snowboarding what are you most likely finding yourself getting into?
Wakeboarding and skateboarding

What is your favorite area on the mountain? Jumps, rails, natural terrain?
I really enjoy riding the entire mountain but riding in the terrain park is a lot of fun.

Where do you see yourself in five years snowboarding wise?  Traveling to another country?
I hope that I’ll be able to travel more, I’ve met so many new people through snowboarding and on social media. I have friends all across the country and in different countries. I hope to one day be able to go to their mountains and ride with them

Do you have a pre-boarding ritual or something you need to have on you at all times on the mountain?
I have a favorite lucky pair of Neff, Bert and Ernie mittens that I’ve been wearing for the last 3 seasons. I wear them every time I’m snowboarding and whenever I’m competing in snowboarding, they give me good luck.
