Interview

Where did you grow up skiing?
Squaw Valley, CA

Who taught you how to ski?
First Dad, then Squaw Valley Freestyle Team. I also used to just follow Squaw rippers like Tom Day and Jonny Moseley around. In fact, Jonny was my coach in the summer in New Zealand in 1994… hard to believe that was 20 years ago.

Do you have any notable accomplishments in skiing? Awards?

  • I've been in ski movies nearly every year since 1995
  • My first Warren Miller film was in 1995 (SnowRiders)
  • I competed in big mountain skiing from 1995 - 2012 and while I podiumed several events, the highlight was a 5th place in the Verbier Extreme
  • I won the Squaw Valley’s Lake Cushing Crossing in 2009 with Timy Dutton
  • I have more fun than anyone on the mountain.

Who is/are your hero(s) in skiing?
Shane McConkey and anyone who is out there having more fun than me or doing more amazing, creative stuff than we have ever seen.
