[frame_left] [/frame_left]Growing up in the East Kootenays, it was easy to fall in love with the mountains. Whether it was camping trips with my father or out on my own. Finding my independence as a young man came quickly. Nature had a hold of me. In the beginning of my Snowboarding it was all about finding new places to go and ride. Hiking, roadtrips, different resorts, my group of close friends searched endlessly. Later we found it was beneficial to enter competitions to gain access to our parents cars . As well as to be allowed to escape on the weekends because of these events. This is where my competitive spirit took root. I have always loved sport, however no other sport quite had the appeal as snowboarding. The freestyle side of competing was first. Halfpipes were at most resorts and it was great to see the level of the sport grow. With more adventures and travel I quickly leaned towards Freeride side of the sport. From there it was an exciting cross over to Snowboardcross. After more then a decade of world travel and competition at our sports highest level. My heart feels fulfilled with my achievements. Summer of 2014 I retired from National team level of competition.
