Bio: I spent 19 years of my existence living in the funky little town of Rossland B.C. Rossland has been the perfect stomping ground for me. I was introduced to skiing by my parents when I was 3 years old and instantly fell in love with the sport. I love to get out in the pow, build jumps, find new hits, and generally just huck myself off whatever I can. I have participated in ski competitions since 2014, but have struggled to reign in my sender skiing style when it comes to competing. This in turn attracted me to film skiing as it gives me creative freedom. There’s nothing better then working hard for a particular shot, or a certain line and watching the shot afterwards to find out it looks exactly how you imagined.

I was 3 years old but wasn’t skiing consistently till i was around 10
