What board and binding set up are you riding this season?

Where do you live now?

I just bought a house on lake Jessamine in Orlando, FL.

One place you would like to travel?

Somewhere in the Caribbean.

Childhood hero?

My parents.

Where is you favorite place to ride?

Brighton Lake, Brighton, MI

Are you competing in any contests this year?

Yeah Ill do all of the pro events all summer long. I was injured last summer so I'm excited to get back to competing.

What would you say is the best part about riding for CWB?

Myself and the rest of team CWB are in a fortunate position where we get to help push the company and show it in the best light, as well as innovate unique and top shelf product.

What are you looking forward to this summer?

I'll be doing a lot of traveling and probably to some cool places so that will be pretty fun, but I'll probably enjoy the little down time I have more haha.

If you could have a super power what would it be?

Teleporting would be cool, no airport lines.

What would you do if you couldn't wakeboard?

I think I would be a public speaker. A lot of people are afraid to speak publicly about what they believe in. They are afraid to be pushed away by society if the believe in themselves to much, and I think thats pretty bogus. I've always believed in myself and I believe that mankind can make anything possible, and I want to encourage more people to believe that they can accomplish they're goals and I will use any pedestal possible to showcase that it's possible, wether it's my riding or a new job in the future.

Have you filmed for any videos lately?

I filmed for Sean Kilgus' new movie PRIME back last summer and fall before I got injured. That video came out not to long ago and Kilgus did a fantastic job. I'm working on a new piece with Alliance wake but that won't come put until February or later.

Favorite Television show?

Modern Family or Law and order SVU haha.

Favorite Movie?

Theres so many good ones that I like that I can't pick a favorite.


CWB, Nautique, Red Bull, Billabong, Buywake, Zeal Optics, CTI
