Why do you snowboard? Soooo much fun being creative, putting your own style into your riding. The thrill and always pushing yourself to the next level. Plus there is nothing better than bombing mountains with your friends.

Gnarliest Spot: I tried this massive down flat down at the Edina High School. Wasn’t prepared came off early and slammed my head on the stairs. KO. Backcountry in Vail gets gnarly and summer riding at Mt. Hood gets pretty gnarly.
First Memory: When I was 13, I went and watched the Olympics in Salt Lake in 2002. Ross Powers, sending a 20ft method, changed everything for me. They called me big bird cruising down with my massive yellow jacket. It was one of my first years riding, but that is when I started realizing how much I loved it.
