How old were you when you started wakeboarding?
I was waterskiing at age 2 and wakeboarding by age 4, the youngest grom on the scene.
What is your most memorable experience on your wakeboard?
Winning the Red Bull Wake Open Big Air event on the last run of the entire event, the walk-off home run of wake.
Favorite spot to ride?
No place like home!
Which wake athlete do your respect the most and why?
Reed Hansen, he's one of my good friends which gives me some extra points but, he is constantly pushing himself to be a better wakeskater and human being.
What are you going to do when you retire from wake?
Hopefully I will have my bachelor's degree finished by then, so I'll go from there I guess.
