Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I've spent my years taking in everything that this amazing corner of the country has to offer. From my early days in the streets of Calgary to the recent years via sled access in the Whistler and Washington backcountry my focus has always been on creating a diverse film segment that showcases how I view sliding down the mountain. I love working on new and different projects from both sides of production and find nothing greater than creating something different that people really enjoy.

 

What is your favorite ski in 2012/2013 Collection?

One and Shiro


Why do you like this ski?

The One is my go to ski for when the snow isn’t quite as deep. It has all the great qualities of the Two in a narrower package, great for a couple days after a storm and general resort riding.


I break the Shiro out when I’m skiing big lines and looking to stomp big airs. It charges hard, is super stable at speed, and lands drops like none other.


What conditions do you use this ski for?

 

Ideally for deep powder but it still rips in all conditions.


What about bindings? What bindings do you use? And where do you mount them?

I use the Jester Pro on all my skis except for my touring setup that has the Duke on it. I mount them 2-4cm back from true center depending on which ski.


What DIN do you have your bindings on?

15-16 (toe-heel) for Shiros and 13-14 for everything else
