Q: Why do you think it is important to introduce people to the sport of snowboarding?

A: First of all, I don’t think there is anything more fun than snowboarding. Secondly, If you look at a sport like snowboarding and the people who pursue riding a lot, you can see that it’s a deep part of them. It’s an addiction that gives them a high quality of life. I believe everyone should have access to that.

Q: What got you into snowboarding? 

A: My story is an interesting one, you can read all about it on this website “ABOUT” section.

Q: What do you see as the future of the sport? A: Well, you will never see progress stop. Kids will always want to spin more and hit bigger jumps. But, I also see a lot of people who miss the soul of snowboarding. There is a huge market of people who just want to go out and enjoy a few turns in their spare time, I think this market will grow. As far as the youth, I believe organizations like ours are imperative to keep the hype and excitement alive.

A: I think it is important because it gives us a sense of belonging, a connection to ourselves, the mountains and our community. Personally, snowboarding gave me a positive outlet out of an adverse childhood in Jackson.

Q: What got you into snowboarding?

A: I won a scholarship with the Jackson Hole Ski Club which gave me the opportunity to snowboard. I progressed very quickly on the team and my connection to the snowboard industry gave me opportunities to travel, photograph and pursue passions. 

Q: What do you see as the future of the sport?

A: I see snowboarding as the gateway into personal growth and connection to our natural world that I feel everyone should have access to. The more time people spend in nature the more they can understand the importance of conservation, protecting what we have and spreading awareness of climate change.
