Favorite TV series, movie or book and why
My favorite TV series is Californication because it is raw and hilarious.
My favorite book is Motley Crue: The Dirt by Neil Strauss because Neil knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Surfing is probably my favorite hobby.
Favorite professional sports team
I’m a bandwagon Vancouver Canucks fan, but I’m not into team sports.
Goals outside of sport
Creating a job or business for myself that I enjoy and love.
My greatest fear would have to be dying.
How did you get into freestyle?
My parents asked me if I wanted to ski or play hockey because they could only afford to do one at the time. I chose skiing and they were so excited because they didn’t have to get up at 5 am.
If I wasn’t an athlete I would be…
Probably in school or working in a trade just like everybody else, but that’s too boring.
Favorite World Cup / AFP stop
AFP World Champs in Whistler because it is where the original World Ski and Snowboard festival started and it is so much fun.
I have too many, but I’m working on narrowing it down.
Anything else to add?
I’d like to thank my family for all their love and support.
