Name a person who inspires you to be a better skier/rider?
Danny Davis, watching him ride is like watching an artist with his paintbrush.
In lieu of our 70th film, what’s your most memorable or favorite Warren Miller film or segment – past or present?
I recall little 10 year old me being stoked watching the Burton smalls segment in Warren Miller Playground at Mammoth. I used to go see the movie every year in Tacoma, and seeing kids my age ripping at mammoth the big screen got me so fired up to get on a board that season.
What would you do if you won the lottery?
I'd stake out some property, probably in idaho/wyoming with a little airstrip, some sleds, skatepark, all the necessary components for an epic compound.
Best meal you can cook?
Grilled Chicken on a nice bed of Arugala. Keep it simple
Favorite chairlift and why?
Chair 6 at Crystal Mountain, leads to The King. I owe a lot of my riding growth to that terrain
Fictitious character you most identify with from a book, movie, etc. and why?
Otto from Rocket Power. Childhood inspiration.
Highlight memory from filming with WME for this year's film?
One evening we pulled off a sunset shoot on the Jump line at Eldora. It is so sick when it can be a productive session for filming with everyone feeding off each others energy and landing. Throwing a private jump line, epic lighting, and sled laps into the mix makes it that much better!
Gear you are loving right now, on or off the ski slopes, and why?
All my Burton AK gear has been killer, finally figured out a fit i like and its trusty all winter from resort to touring to sledding. Can't beat staying' dry and being comfy out there
What is a cause you care about that you'd love to share with the Warren Miller audience?
The Chill Foundation. Chill works to remove barriers to accessing boardsports and supports continued progression (Surf, Skate, Snow Etc.) for youth that may be in a difficult situation or not have the means of doing so. It helps them see past their current situation to a new light, and learn a variety of skills as well as hopping on a board and experiencing that growth from riding.
