I learned how to snowboard in my friend's backyard when I was 12 years old.

Who are you normally seen with on the hill?
I ride with whoever is on the hill at the time.
What was your first board?
My first board was a Static (whatever that is?) with Ride click-ins and Ride boots. My board had flaming dice on it!
Currently, I ride an Arbor Westmark 151 with Switchback bindings and Thirtytwo Lashed boots - Bradshaw style.
What gets you hyped to head out into the cold and get rad?
When on the hill, I feed off of my friends and other talented riders. My music helps a lot too. When off of the hill, I watch edits on transworldsnowboarding.com and vgsnow.com. Times when I am feeling burnt out from work or school always gets me pumped to go ride as well!

Handplant, Front 3, and Backside Blunt 270 out.

What do you do in the summer?
I keep busy with my photography for the most part. I also enjoy a good mini pipe session. Biking is fun. Most of all, I love spending time with my fiance (getting married June 16, 2013) - attempting to play tennis and volley ball, swimming at the lake, and exploring the great outdoors.
Best way to wind down after a sesh?
Cuddling with my lady! Get those sweaty boots off ASAP.
