What is your favorite thing about snowboarding?
Thinking of my 1 favorite thing makes my head hurt. At First it was the opportunity to see snow for the first time. Once i got a handle on it, maching downhill and touching sky was my favorite. But Lately its been all about the experiences that go along with the shredding, from learning how to build terrain in a snow cat to sleeping in an Amsterdam train station with your best buds after a 20 hour lay over back to LA. HOLLA!
Other then snowboarding, what makes you happiest in life?
traveling, friends and family, skate and surf, public transit, music festys, my girlfriend, dance parties, reading, snow tractors, hippies, partying of any kind.
Favorite snowboarders?
Gigi Ruf, Travis Parker, Shane Flood
Where was the coolest place you have ever been? What was cool about it?
The coolest place I’ve been so far was Romania. We didnt know what to expect if anything at all, and it turned out they had one of the raddest snowboarding scenes i’ve seen. Great people with tons of heart for the sport they took us in and gladly showed us to their favorite spots. It didnt snow in the city till the night before we left, but it was one of those lifetime experiences no doubt.
Top 5 bands or songs you are listening to?
Jigga Man
Slightly Stoopid
Where would you like to snowboard that you have not yet been?
Japan, they have a great culture and the BC looks magical.
Who inspires you?
Anyone who stays true to themselves in spite of what other people think or what society labels the norm, but a BIG shout out goes to my Dad!

If you were trapped on an island for the rest of your life, and you could only have one thing, what would it be?
