Q & A

How did last season go, any highlights or low points?

My hometown finally got blasted with a polar vortex and I was able to ride features I've dreamed of since I started snowboarding. It was incredible!

Favorite or most memorable trip you have ever been on?

My first trip to Quebec was absolutely amazing. I was filming with the PeepShow girls and found the culture and motivation of that place to inspire my snowboarding in so many ways. The locals were so welcoming and taught me traditions of snowboarding I never knew we're possible. That was my first rail trip ever and the memories keep me going to this very day! Thanks all of you.

What’s your version of living the dream?

Making the impossible possible on a regular basis. Put your mind to it, and you will find a way.

Worst bet you’ve ever lost?

It was probably at a blackjack table in Las Vegas.

What snowboarder have you always idolized?

Jess Kimura. She has a way of proving the near impossible.

What do you think your spirit animal is?

A Roadrunner – My mom gave me a charm to hang in my car (I've put thousands of miles on my car and can't stay in one place for more than a month while chasing the snow) I then fell in love with the desert, saw a roadrunner, and chased it around the Joshua trees.

Snowboarding achievement you are most proud of?

I’m most proud of my video part in The Shred Remains.

Would you rather?

Front board a double kink, backflip a road gap or hike for early season lines?

Hike!

Film a video part, compete in the contest circuit or free ride resorts all season?

Film a full part.

Get a sketchy leg tat, get your hair cut into a mullet or shave a moustache?

Leg tattoo.

Go cliff jumping, fishing or skateboarding?

Fishing for bass or crabbing.

Shot-gun a beer, rip a shot of whiskey or sip champagne?

I'm a champagne lady.

Throw a nasty euro carve on fresh corduroy, unleash a “Perfect” method anytime or drop an untouched pillow line?

Methods all day, every day!

Start your own brand, work in the industry or retire to a cabin in the backcountry?

Start my own brand.
