Favorite video of all time: Incredibly tough question… depends on the day. I really liked Deja Vu. Encore backed it up in an amazing way as well. Some great videos. Canadian boarding too, which is something I back.

The Most Grom Thing You’ve Ever Done: I remember being a teenager at High Cascade and it was the last day when all the campers and staff are in the lodge. I think it was Mikkel Bang or some other Burton pro and I gave him a high five. Right as I make a joke to one of my friends about never washing my hand, the whole room goes weirdly silent and everyone hears. Mikkel thought it was hilarious and everyone got a good laugh out of it.
Worst (drunken) purchase: Food that I didn’t actually want to eat
Punch one person in the world in the face: whoever smashed in the window of my car a couple months ago
Time you thought you were going to die: COP jumps after freezing rain
Website you check everyday: Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram
Give thanks to: Too many people to name. All the boarders who are out getting it, I think snowboarding is in a good place right now. My family, all the wonderful people and brands who support my snowboarding and anyone who has ever helped me out in the past.
