Skateboarding and Snowboarding

When: I moved to Whistler when I was 9 years old from Vancouver, and to this date, it has been the best decision (in my opinion) that my family has made. To put it in short form, I love standing sideways whether that's skateboarding, snowboarding, or even surfing.

This season I am looking to take my snowboarding as well as my skateboarding to new heights by competing, as well as doing some filming in the mountains and traveling around getting new tricks on the skateboard! Huge shout out to the Whistler old school initiative for the support!

Why: My goals and ideas for the upcoming years are to become a professional snowboarder and skateboarder. On the snowboard side, I am going to compete at this year’s Nationals and start to film in the backcountry and on the streets making cool little projects hopefully! (I’m closing in on my first snowmobile as well which is very exciting!)

To accomplish these goals, I am going to continue to ride with the Whistler Valley Snowboard Club so that I can perfect all my tricks and learn new ones to a point where I can take what I learned to things like competitions and the backcountry!
For skateboarding I am looking to start competing and work towards bigger things such as the Olympics in 2024… that, of course, is the ultimate goal.

In order to get there, I hope to go down to the city and ride with national team rider Adam Hopkins a few times a month and try to learn from him. I also plan to continue to go to the gym and get my body in good condition for heavy days at the
