How did you discover your talent? What got you started?

I used to ski a lot but I needed something to do in the offseason so I tried biking and I loved it.


As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted and still do want to be a pilot but I would love to bike as a career


Who was your biggest inspiration?

A biker named Ryan Howard I really admire his style on a bike.

What makes you keep innovating and pushing your skills to new heights? What’s the intrinsic driver or motivation?

I like the adrenaline and I get that from hitting big stuff on a bike 


So far, what has been your favorite highlight of your career? An achievement? A specific moment?

I don't know if I have one I would say just riding my bike all day.


In regards to your career, where do you want to be in 5 or 10 years?

Either racing or just freeriding

In terms of healthy habits, what are your thoughts on the current beverage options out there?

I try not to drink them but I think it's bad how much processed stuff they put into them. 


How does Wize fit into your current lifestyle? And why do you choose Wize?

I choose wize because it's nicer tasting then other options and its great when it's hot and dusty


What are the next projects coming down the pipeline? 

I will be going to BC Cups in a few weeks

What’s your favorite flavor of Wize tea? When do you typically drink it?

I like the grapefruit iced tea when it's hot and dry out on the trails
