This has taken him to dream destinations such as Alaska and the Alps. He thanks the mountains and characters of RED resort for developing his style and teaching him many life lessons.

What’s your favourite thing about RED?

A fish doesn’t see the water it swims in. I have a lifetime of memories at RED, I wouldn’t know where to start!

What movie/video gets you most amped for the winter?

Maybe focused by msp? Something like that. Vintage. Teddybear crisis maybe. Old Candide.

What’s your favorite run at RED

Maybe the waterfall area. Crazy vertical. Leg burner for sure.

Do you listen to music when you shred? (what’s your go-to?)

No I have a theory that headphones mess with your balance. You want to hear the wind while youre in the air. Travis Steeger used to not even wear ear flaps and he had the most insane air sense ever.
But G Code is the answer to that question.

Surf, skate. Flex.

K fed. For sure.

Nope. Overall probably hustling or neglecting sponsor emails.

Jaguar. They are fresh.

Fresh my bru! With the south African accent.

Describe your perfect apres.

Sauna. Nap.
