Best moment filming with WME this year?
The best moments were had at Mike Wiegle heliskiing- It snowed so much everyday, and I couldn't believe that they could even fly the helis when it was snowing that hard, but we kept getting dropped off and got to ride some of the deepest snow I've ever ridden!
How did Warren Miller the man influence your skiing/riding career?
I always admired Warren's sense of humor, and he taught me to not take things so seriously. It is just snowboarding after all. He also inspired me as a filmmaker (which I went to school for). His passion for sliding on snow sparked a fire that created this crazy industry we are in and set the stage for making films that could inspire more people to get into the mountains and play, which is something that I continue to try to do. He leaves a beautiful legacy behind him. Thanks Warren!
