Who do you ski with now

Try to ski with a lot of different people. All of my friends and team mates, but mostly Eric Pollard. Ride with a lot of boarders too

What have been the highlights of your skiing career

Making my passion for skiing a lifestyle and career.

Is there anything in skiing you haven't done that you'd like to accomplish

A lot. There is a million things I still hope to accomplish, from tricks, to lines,to ski technology, all the way down to how I make a turn…

What do you do besides skiing

Surf, climb, bike, yoga, art, photography, eat, sleep...try to enjoy my life to the fullest.

What music art books have you been enjoying lately

Been listening to some rad old 50's and 60's jams lately. Always intrigued by art through out my travels. I tend to listen to books on tape. Haven't had much time to read. Half way through Keith Richard's documentary. Just finished The Art of Racing in the Rain.

What are your future goals

To stay healthy, be a good person, and keep on the path I'm on now.
