WHAT KEEPS YOU SURFING SNOW?
The feeling of snowboarding, the energy, the community and a chance for me to fit in. As a person with a disability, snowboarding gives me the chance to leave a handicap at the door so I can surf the snow!

First memory of snowboarding?
My first memory of snowboarding starts off in Steamboat Springs,CO where with a non profit- The Sunshine Kids- I had the opportunity to first see the mountains, and fall in love with snowboarding! Freshly a childhood cancer survivor snowboarding was a new life, a new way to express myself in sport.
Last memory of snowboarding?
Ripping Winter Park with a group of friends, after coming home from the LBS at baker!
How has your appreciation of snowboarding evolved over the years?
Snowboarding is truly a family community. No matter where you come from snowboarding is a universal language that we can all understand. Snowboarding has taught me how to make friends, learn from others before me, and how to love the outdoors more. Thank you Snowboarding
What keeps you busy off the mountain?
My family keeps me pretty busy! Being a father so close in age to my child makes for many fun times and activities. I enjoy spending as much time with family as I can. You can find me with them, Working out in the gym, riding my motorcycle in the summer or skateboarding.
Funniest memory on the mountain
Right under the lift in front of EVERYONE- My prosthetic knee comes flying off during a turn.. My pants were covering my prosthetic- show casing what looks to be my leg broken in the most horrific way possible haha.I was so calm which added to the humor, I still can hear the people on the lift screaming at me. haha
