Briefly describe yourself… I shred the nar in the winter time and I work about 3-4 jobs in the summer. I love to skateboard, surf, hike, camp, swim and cook yummy food.

Talk us through your average day… It usually starts with some coffee and shredding of some sort and ends with some cuddling. Besides that, it could go anywhere. My average day is never usually the same…

How long have you been riding? About 8 years.

Best achievement: Living my dream.

Best trick: Drinking a beer with a straw while standing on my head…

Biggest rush: Sky diving or dropping into a big kicker or a big cliff.

Scariest moment: Waking up in an ambulance.

Favourite riders: My favorite riders are definitely all of my homies but if we are talking about pro favorites, I would have to say Devun Walsh, DCP, Josh Dirksen, MFM, Danny Kass, and Travis Rice.

Favourite place to ride and why: I love June Mountain, CA, because there is usually always powder to be found, there is plenty of sunshine, the park and the pipe are amazing, there are no crowds and the back country access is unlimited.

What essential items do you pack in your suitcase for a trip? Clean undies and socks are always a must, Snowboard gear and my ipod.

Top 3 tunes: I can’t really narrow it down to three songs but I can narrow it down to three styles. Hip hop, reggae, and metal. I love so many different styles of music…

How do you stay in shape? I do a lot of trail running and hiking mountains, and I also love skate boarding, yoga, and swimming for exercise.

Top training tip: Stretch!

Favourite foods: Sushi and ice cream (but not together!)

Must-have beauty product: Lotion to keep my skin from getting dry.

Beauty tip: Wear sunscreen whenever you are outside. It will save your skin and keep you wrinkle- free.

Favourite clothing brands: Nikita clothing is very comfortable, stylish, and fun to wear. It’s the best!

Fashion tip: Mix it up. Don’t be afraid to try different styles. Have fun with fashion.

Which celeb’s style do you admire? Homer Simpson – he’s not afraid to show off his beer belly. I admire that…

Favourite quote: Ride with love.

Before I die I want to: Fly a helicopter, deep sea dive, travel the world and have a family with the man of my dreams.
