My career started out on the free ride scene. I competed on the US freeksi circuit and also on the FWT. When Halfpipe got accepted into the Olympics I decided to qualify and ended up in 5th Place. I've also been filming with Shades of Winter since 2013. I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love as a job.

Revolt, Katana V.Werks

The Revolt for skiing Halfpipe; Katana for touring
3. Why do you like this ski?

Katana V-Werks 184 cm. My favorite back country touring ski because it's 112mm underfoot which makes it a versatile big moutain touring ski. Love this ski because of the 3D RIDGE construction and a full carbon sheet construction.
4. Why do you like being a part of the Völkl team?
The quality of skis! Weather it be Freeride, Freestyle, Big mountain or touring, the athletes have direct input into the skis development and you can feel this when you ski them.
