Make a Wish come true at Breckenridge, CO

Myself, Bryce, his brother and sister Ethan and Kayla. 

I have been privileged to work with the Make a Wish Foundation for the past few years since moving to Colorado. They are an absolute inspiration, and I can't wait to continue to grow our relationship and grant more wishes!
Living in Breckenridge is unbelievable, and many people would love to come here just to be a part of the mountains, snow, and community. Thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation, 8 year old Bryce got to do just that. He and his family were brought to Breckenridge for a ski vacation and some relaxing time in the mountains.
Looking for more ways to personally give back in my snowboarding career, this seemed a perfect opportunity to give back to the snowboard community, and help to do my part in inspiring the next generation of snowboarders.
It was a complete honor to get to know and teach Bryce and his family about snowboarding. What an amazing human being and supportive family! I look forward to granting many wishes like this!

2014 Wrap Up

Well 2014 has come to a close, and as I've mentioned before it could have been one of my worst years ever. Having torn my ACL at the Olympic qualifier at Breckenridge, I was obviously devastated, but decided to put all of my focus and energy into rehabilitation of my knee. It has most definitely paid off, I was able to coach at Windells this summer and get back a little bit of on snow time that I had lost. Working with personal trainers, and dedicating hours in the gym has enabled me to be riding again at a level that I am comfortable being at, and constantly pushing myself and my body every day. I have a different approach to this season and am excited to be working on a few different projects with Bombas Socks, and the Make a Wish Foundation, that are setting the standard for giving back. I am also looking forward to competing in the Subaru Freeride Series which is a realm I am quite comfortable being in, but have never had the opportunity to compete. 
The road to recovery will never quite be over, and I will always strive to be better being a competitive athlete. I would like to thank all of my supporters who have stood behind me on this journey, I would not be here without you.

Colorado Preseason 2014

I am so grateful for the preseason here in Colorado. It started off a bit shaky with delayed openings and warm weather but mother nature didn't hold anything back this past week after it dumped 30+ inches. There was enough snow to setup a little feature in the bike park near my house in Breckenridge, we got some fun shots and even little video compliments of 4reelmedia.  Huge thanks to Polar Pro, and Hitcase for helping me capture these moments!

Monterey, Pebble Beach, and Laguna Seca Raceway

As i've mentioned before I am incredibly proud of my family, and stepfather Rick. We were privledged to be a part of the premiere of "Racing Through the Forest" a documentary focused on the start of the Pebble Beach Road Races, and the transition into Laguna Seca Raceway, that he produced and took major part in the making of. The premiere was absolutely beautiful and the movie was so well received by the general public and racing community. Congratulations to Rick and Dean Kirkland the director of the film! 
We also got to watch Rick race at Laguna Seca (his home track) and take home a 3rd place finish in the CanAm class in his 1972 McLaren. Shake and Bake! Again what a wonderful weekend with family, friends, and some legendary race car drivers.
