Why do you ride for PF?
PF is our "crew" or "posse" or whatever you call a bunch of buddys having fun snowboarding, it keeps us together and you gotta rep yourself and your friends somehow.
Hobbies off the board?
Party, hangout with my buddys, play video games of course, I play soccer too!....what?
Hows livin' on Nettles?
Living on Nettles has its ups and downs, it's close to everything you need(grocery store, school, local ski slope), although the snow turns to ice within 5 hours.
Old rock for sure, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, T-hip. Ive also been known to have some T-Swift and The Fray on my ipod. Whatever pumps you up right?
Why are you referred to as Pickels?
There once was a park ranger by the name of Eric Harrison (E-bonk) his wise words were "right now your a little pickle, but one day you will become a great big cucumber". They also seem to get stuck in my braces which the ladys dig.
Favourite places to ride?
The dirty Dag, only because its the only place I ride. Oh ya right now the streets and I are having good time, gettin some shots for the new flick.
How long have you been riding Dagmar?
8 seasons and counting
Snot Rockets or lip chap?
Snow rockets are fun to fire at people from the lift.
Plans for this season?
Enter some contests, hit lots of handrails and other cool stuff, maybe even a road trip, eat shit alot, power laps at dag with the kids and Hopefully watch a full length PF video at the end of it all.
Future livin plans?
This area is blurry, not sure yet, still in grade 11, not stoked to leave southern Ontario...wait what the fuck...fuck Ontario!
Inspirations on the shred?
So many, I watch too many snowboarding edits/videos and visit blogs and what not daily that each inspire me. footyfiend, peachhat, Kuzyks blog, transworld are some cool ones. Papa Lloyd helps me get the shot too

Any last words for all the kids?
Shoot snot rockets at people, bomb past slow signs, dont swizzle, eat pulled pork, snow old ladys, dont snow asian skiers go through them, puke at partys, and have fun thats why were here.
