How many years have you been snowboarding?

20 years I believe

What is your home mountain?

Snowbird, UT

Where can people find you?

On the mountain or @concretesneaks

What´s the reason you started snowboarding?

Friends I looked up to, as well as skating.

What´s the reason you keep snowboarding?

Traveling with friends and it makes me happy!


Has your snowboarding changed since you filmed for the first Lick The Cat (LTC) Spring Break edit?

Haha Yes! I think it has for sure! I’ve reeled it in a lot as far as what I know I’m capable of riding and getting away with at spots, and I think I’ve just gotten stronger physically so that’s helped a lot.

Where can people watch your video parts?

Vans Landline is available on iTunes, and the LTC vid will be live sometime in November.

In what way do you want to give back or express yourself within snowboarding?

Going to the resort and riding with new people and all the young kids in Utah, and filming for specific projects with friends and people I look up to hopefully inspiring others to strap in someday as well.

Who are the people in snowboarding right now that keep you motivated and hyped on the current stat of snowboarding community and/or direction?

Anyone that seems to be doing it because it’s something they love to do, rather than getting paid the most money in the world to drive a fancy car or be the coolest person they know etc. etc. just be yourself rather than do something for anyone else for a some sort of financial or social benefit.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I want to thank my family, friends, and sponsors for the unconditional love/support! <3
