I love life and I try to live it to the fullest. I enjoy traveling, meeting people and seeing new cultures. It is interesting to me how they differ from the one I was brought up in. Skiing is a great way for me to express myself, relish being active, and see new places around the world. I am thankful for skiing and all that it has brought me. There is a remarkable connection to skiing and almost everything in my life. I have always skied and I love it more than ever. I cant wait to get out and rip some pow and watch my friends make sick cool things happen.

Interview

Inner Interview

Interview: 

What about bindings? What bindings do you use? And where do you mount them?
I use the Jester Pro and the Duke. Mounting positions change quite a bit for all the different skis I talked about. I mount the Two 6 cm back from true center. I mount the Shiro a little further back from true center but not much. I usually mount the Mantra and Katana on the freeride line because I don't plan to ski switch on them.

What DIN do you have your bindings on?
I usually keep my DINs around 16-18. I sometimes have them a little higher on skis that I jump a lot with.
