What terrain do you like to ride? I ride pretty much everywhere. I love jumps of any size, I love steeps, chutes, cliffs, easy groomers, even moguls!
What’s on your iPod these days? Favorite band at the moment has to be the Great Lake Swimmers, everyone should check them out!
What would be your dream snowboard trip? I'm lucky to have realized many of my snowboarding dream trips already, however heli-boarding still hasn't been checked off the list!
Why do you spend so much time in the Sierra Snowboard online community? It's nice to be able to communicate with regular people from all walks of life that share the same passion about snowboarding as I do. I like that snowboarding only requires passion to be in the club. All other social statuses get checked at the door with snowboarding, and the Sierra community.
Best advice you would give someone new to SierraSnowboard.com? Sign up, get your identity, participate and communicate. Learn from others and contribute your experiences, snowboarding should be accessible to everyone and anyone, we should do our part to give something back in whatever way we can.
Words to live by (e.g. favorite quote, unsolicited advice)? "It's time to nut up, or shut up!" - Woody Harrelson in ZombieLand "Hesitation leads to devastation" - Came up with that while coaching jumps one day.
