Describe a highlight moment from your 2015 IFSA season.

The crowd at the bottom of the venue sharing the same positive and enthusiastic hype after getting done with a run that not only I felt comfortable with but had an incredibly amazing time putting together with my coaches Adam and Wes.

Where can you be found when you are not freeriding?

At the skate park, on Donner Summit climbing Black Wall or Snow Shed, Northstar C.A. downhill mountian biking, in the local Dance studio InnerRythems, hanging out with friends at the lake and pretty much anywhere where there is an abundance of fun to be held.

What topic makes you fired up?

The sports that I love and the people that I love doing them with!

What would you like to see change in the world and how can you make it happen?

I would like to start implementing Biomimicry to everyday appliances in order to create a more sustainable and economic friendly environment for myself, friends, family and eventually kids to to exercise the activities we love so much.

Tell us something about yourself that is unusual or little known.

I love backpacking, the amount of freedom and self reflection that you can get with the connection to your environment and the isolation from civilization, really implements a whole new out look on the life I live.

Shout Outs

I wish to thank my Parents for the support, long nights of travel and the smiles shared at the dinner table after a good day on the hill. I would also like to thank my Coaches Adam, Wes and Bennett for there dedication and everlasting love for the sport and the kids they out put so much energy towards in order to make better riders. As well as send a shout out to Jones Snowbards and for all the love and support Jeremy has given me these last couple of years. I would also like to send my love to my brother Ryan and all my friends from Snowbird Utah to Calorado, to Whistler B.C. and back home again to Tahoe C.A. Thanks ya'll for if it wasn't for you I would never be remotely close to where I am now.
