First memory of going big

Being with my best friend George Hjelte and doing the “I’ll do it if you do it” game on top of a 30 foot air in Squaw.  We were no more than 11 years old I will always remember that day as the day that kicked off a lifelong obsession with jumping off cliffs.(Smith Optics)

Worst job you’ve ever had

Bitch-boy at a butchery/fish market. My hands smelled like salmon for a year. (Levitation Project)

Misc. thanks, shoutouts, rants

Thanks to my awesome wife, my supportive parents and all those fans out there giving me Pro Call Out’s every twenty minutes, it’s still funny even though you’re all very wrong.

“Skiing is the only thing in my life that I’ve never questioned. I knew ever since I was 2 years old that this was what I was going to do for the rest of my life.”
