The Beginning

Establishing the roots and drive to make skiing an endless adventure becomes my sole mission!

I was extremely fortunate to have been raised in the historic and cultured town of Nelson BC Canada. At the age of 2, I was introduced to one of Nelson’s crown jewels, the Whitewater Ski Resort, which would soon become my second home. Whitewater was  where I could express my freedom, passion and artistry.  It didn’t take too long to get noticed. By the time I was 7 years old, I was featured in Bill Heath’s film “Sinners”. 

Competition Era

The road to competing on the pro Freeride World Tour (FWT) takes determination beyond definition – especially when you accomplish this goal twice.

Roots have a way of digging in. Like the fact that the best days on skis happen with friends.  Shredding for the love of it!

2010:  2nd Canadian Freeride Open and 1st Jr. Big Mountain event Lake Louise

2018: 18th place FWT final standings

Roots Rising

Another adventure awaits!  I am super exited to return to my roots of skiing to work on my own film project. Expanding and re-defining my own “flow state”.
