Grew up dreaming of the mountains while living at the beach. Did a lot more surfing and skateboarding than snowboarding as a kid but I always dreamed of living in a place where I could snowboard more than a few days a year. I made the move to Tahoe for what I thought would be one winter season five years ago. I’ve been working as a snowboard instructor each winter since. In the winter Im on the mountain snowboarding and coaching nearly 120 days a season. I love all aspects of snowboarding from the streets to the park to the steeps but my favorite all time part about riding is big drops into deep powder. In the summer you can find me up in Oregon riding Mt. Hood or at the beach surfing or kiteboarding.
