What are 5 things on your "Bucket List"?

5. Build my dream home and have a raging party in it.
If you could spend 1 hour with any person in the world who would it be? Why?
I would like to meet with Terje Håkonsen, because he could teach me how to ride pow
Who has been the most influential person in your life?
My father and mother taught me that I can do what ever I want, it didn’t really mean much to me until my father passed away and I started to think about what I could do with my life that would make my father proud. A few years later I really started applying myself to snowboarding and school (in that order) and then I knew my father would always be my inspiration to do great things, I am proud of my family for what they have been through and how strong we are together.
What was the coolest moment of your entire life so far?
The day I learned how to snowboard, on a plastic walmart snowboard on a ten foot hill in the middle of capitol city state park in Augusta ME.
Do you think you will be famous? Doing what?
who knows, I would like to really get into music and see if I could do that, but I’m shit on guitar and my singing is mediocre at best. Maybe I’ll be a viral video star for some candid and very embarassing shot that the Shreddy Times crew might get of me this season. :) one can only hope!
Top 5 Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs?
1. This is the place
2. Californication
3. My Friends
4. Can’t Stop
5. All Around the World
What fuels you?
Sugar, Music, Homies,
Who inspires you?
My homies!, and my family, and crazy MFers on the internet.
Where would you like to snowboard that you have not yet been?
AK
Describe what is like when you are starting at pow and you don’t know how to ride it yet?
My back leg hurts, my board isn’t right for it and my face muscles hurt from smiling too much.
What is the most ridiculous thing that you thought you would be when you grew up?
US Air force pilot
What was the highlight of your rollerblading career?
When I won a snowboarding DVD at a big air flybox contest at camp Woodward 2002.
What are you doing with that college degree that your worked so hard to get?
I’m working on a patent for a binding adapter plate I designed, other than that my degree just sits on display in my room…unused.
What did you and your friends do in your hometown to kill time?
We used to climb buildings and bridges and pretty much anything we could find. one time we climbed the local civic center and when we got to the roof we noticed some security dudes on the roof below us shining lights like they heard us. needless to say we got the hell out of there just in time to see the cops, sirens blaring headed straight for where we were. we found out the next day that there was a gun show there… not the best time to climb that one!
Do you think owning a Jeep makes you more of a man?
Yes
What do you hope to accomplish this winter?
Have fun! Learn more about every type of snowboarding, film a half decent part and compete when it fits in there.

    Hey, you probably don’t remember me but I rode with you on Snomad a couple of years ago. This is a random question, but where did you go to college and what did you major in?

    Hey Travis of course I remember you! how have you been? Is Snomad still going off at the old LV? To answer your question I studied Mechanical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Mass. It was a great school I had a blast but the city of Worcester isn’t so fun haha. Ill be back on the east coast for Christmas time we should meet up and shred at lost valley I heard josh just built us a bunch of features there! Keep shredding dood!

    Nice dude, we definitely should. Snomad is still going strong but I’m not going to do it this year because the season passes to LV are so expensive. Ironically WPI is one of the schools I’m looking at going to. Keep up all the sick Shreddy Times videos!

    p.s. Mike Wilson is amazing.
