Bio

I grew up in North Bay, Ontario. I love the outdoors. I'm always outside exploring and having fun. At seven years old I hit the slopes for the first time and within a few days started getting a feel for rails and jumps. I was getting air! So I started entering contests and the exposure got me noticed by a local company, who offered me a sponsorship at the end of the first season. I was stoked!

In 2008 I travelled out to Mount St Louis, Moonstone to join the Simple Snowboarding Team for some serious fun – and world class coaching with Sam Marcotte, Elliot Catton and the crew.

Now I travel all over in Canada and United States for training and competitions. A big motivator for me has been getting into world class competitions, and putting down runs that make the older pro snowboarders stop and take notice. I was honoured with representing Canada in the World Youth Olympics at Innsbruck, Austria in Slopestyle, January 2012, and have also joined the Canadian National Junior High Performance Snowboard Team.

During the off season I enjoy wakeboarding and am a certified instructor with my company South Bay Wakeboarding School. I enjoy teaching technical moves, coaching, and love encouraging others to do tricks and have a blast on the water while learning to progress at wakeboarding. The rest of my summer is dedicated to the search for snow, bringing me to the Southern Hemisphere for snowboard training and competitions in New Zealand with my Simple Snowboarding Team, who are like family to me.

I also love to get together with my friends in the pits and motocross on a 250 Suzuki. And I love 4 wheeling, mud bogging and exploring the back country near my home. Dry land training is also a big part of my routine, to ensure I stay fit for competition.

I am 17 and I feel like I was born to ride. I am a serious competitor and have no fear when it comes to upping the ante. Snowboarding is a heart racing adventure for me, and I truly love and respect the sport.
