1) Favorite part about being a Title athlete?
Being a part of a group of people and riders that make up the Title family, to be included in something like this is truly special. It makes me proud to be a Title athlete.

2) Most memorable riding moment?
I would have to say my first flat drop front flip at the Big White Invitational 2021. I remember the uncertainty of the outcome along with a lack of preparation for a rather high consequence trick. That scared sick to my stomach feeling followed by an overwhelming feeling of relief and joy is something I will never forget.

3) Bucket list riding locations?
La Poma Bike Park and Dome Sweden, it would be unreal to ride their setups!

4) What are your hobbies and interests outside of riding?
Outside of riding I grew up playing rep hockey and enjoy watching it. I really enjoy going out snowboarding with my buddies. I have been riding since I was 6 years old, raced in high school and have spent a season teaching.

5) Who is someone that inspires you and why?
Jay-Z is someone who inspires me because of what he preaches. The ability to take the opportunities you are given and capitalize on them to the fullest and to make something greater of it. From him making music to him creating a successful record company is an example of this. This principle applies to all aspects of life and is something I hold to be important.

6) If you weren’t a professional rider, what would your career be?
I am not sure, riding to me has always been so important and something I knew I wanted to do. So, I guess I never really liked the idea of another career path.

7) What was your first mountain bike?
Cannondale Trail 5, I used it as a dirt jumper until I eventually got one.
