My early passion for standing sideways on things led to pursuing the dream of professional snowboarding. During my early 20’s I received product sponsorship from Allian Snowboards, Von Zipper Eyewear, Drake Bindings, Northwave Boots, 686 Outerwear & Technique Skateshop. While I mainly focused on backcountry filming, I occasionally competed, with my best result being a 2nd place finish at the Quiksilver Open Slopestyle at The Canyons resort in 2001. During the 98/99 season I taught advanced level snowboarding for the University of Utah. Below is my section from a full length snowboarding movie we produced called “Weapons Of Mass Destruction”.
