My passion for snowboarding started when I was 3 years old at Beaver Valley Ski Club in Ontario. Both of my parents are snowboarders and put me on a board basically as soon as I could walk. Once I got the hang of it I couldn’t get enough. When the chairlifts would close at the end of the day I would grab my board and hike back up to get more runs.
I started competing at local slopestyle competitions around 12 years old and 10 years later I competed at the Olympic Games at 22 years old in slopestyle and big air snowboarding. I just missed finals by one spot for slopestyle after a fall in my run but ended up 7th overall in big air which I’m very proud of.
Competing at the Olympics was a dream of mine ever since my beaver valley days, and even though I achieved that dream I’m still hungry for more. Now I have my sights set on getting to compete at X Games and the 2026 Olympics. Throughout my career so far I have won 6 world cup medals across slopestyle & big air, including 1st place at the Edmonton big air stadium event.
While training and competing I am also studying online through Wilfrid Laurier University, working away at a BSc in psychology. I am always diligent with my on snow training, as well as off snow, including strength training at the gym, to cover all mental and physical aspects of being an athlete that contribute to success. The only thing I am missing is the funding.
To train and compete at an elite level requires travelling the world, chasing winter throughout the year, to be able to snowboard as much as possible. There are a lot of expenses associated with this including flights, accommodation, proper nutrition, transportation and equipment. I am reaching out in hopes of support for my journey so I can continue to live my dream of snowboarding around the world and representing Canada on the world stage.
