Describe a highlight moment from your 2015 IFSA season.

Obviously winning the overall, but a highlight moment throughout the 2015 season is always the same for every season. The best moment that is so amazing every year is just hanging out at the top of the venue with all my fellow competitors and having a good time and cheering each other on. Freeskiing comps have such a great dynamic, and I want to thank everyone that has supported me and competed with me.

Where can you be found when you are not freeriding?

Hanging out with friends, hiking, soccer, or at the pool

What topic makes you fired up?

COLLEGE :) (California Polytechnic State University: College of Engineering)

Freestyle Q!
