Grew up riding the mean river valleys of central Alberta before moving out west in search of the shred bum dream. I have been involved in competitive snowboarding since 1999, competing in many slopestyle, halfpipe and boardercross events throughout the years. Working as a snowboard instructor
since 1999 and coaching all disciplines of competitive snowboarding since 2003 has allowed me the opportunity to work with several word class athletes and endless rad people.
Spent 6 years as head freestyle coach of Team Rabbit Snowboard Club in Edmonton. Coaching and preparing athletes for provincial, national and NorAm contests, while ensuring good times were always being had on the hill.
When not snowboarding or being a computer nerd I like to try to get my surf on, which has lead me to waves in 18 different countries and many sketchy situations.
See you on the slopes!
