Started skiing when I was 2 at Crystal Mt. WA. when I was old enough my parents put me in CMAC, our local race program so they could ski pow and I could train. After I realized I sucked at racing I actually stopped skiing for a year and pursued motorcycle racing. when I was 13 though, skiing caught my attention again and I competed in my first big mt. competition. From there all I wanted to do was ski and push myself. after winning some comps and traveling a bit I filmed with Warren Miller for my first time at my home mt. for Dynasty. it was a dream come true and to film again with them last year was amazing. Plan on not stopping anytime soon.

What was the most memorable moment while in Japan for the filming of Flow State? Do I really have to name one? There was way to many! Besides the best powder ever, I would have to say skiing the avalanche barriers. I have watched them in other films and dreamed of skiing them. Mission complete.
