Really into running and other sorts of cardio, also try to stretch everyday.

What are your goals for the season?
This season I would like to keep my progression going in slopestyle as well as becoming more consistent in contests. I would like to get all my tricks off of bigger jumps including cab 5’s and front 7’s. I also would like to improve on rails. Overall though I just want to have a good time and help show some younger kids how much fun snowboarding really is.

 I am stoked to be on this team for my 4th year!! I have had so much fun in the past doing all sorts of crazy cool things and I cant wait to see what this year has in store. USASA has always been so supportive and helped me out a lot. I am stoked to be with the kids and coaches for yet another year!

Shout  Outs
Should out to my parents Tom and Lor. Also, my little brother TJ and cousin Tyler for making riding that much more fun.
