1. Please, introduce yourself: tell us where you come from and how were your first snowboard experiences.
I hail from the eastern side of Canada outside Toronto. I grew up riding old garbage dump hills, bruising myself on ice and throwing myself off jumps, pipe and rails. Funny enough my first snowboard experience I hated it. My knees were bruised, my tailbone, I was sore. My mom asked me after my first day riding, that if I wanted to do it again next weekend, and I was like “NO!” After a few weeks, she asked me again if I wanted to try it again, I was hesitant, but, why not. Thanks Mom for the push, now I’m an addict!
