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.
