Minnesota | Wakesurfer
  • I am a competitive snowboarder in the winter. When the ice melts on the lake here in MN, I trade my snowboard for a wakesurf board.
  • Odesza, MO, and 80’s stuff, like Hall n’ Oats
“I would define myself as a 12 year old board sport enthusiast. I love wakesurfing, snowboarding, and skateboarding. Snowboarding would definitely be number 1 though. I’d be lost without snow!!”

What are you looking for in a Network?

I’m looking for a network that showcases adventure and the incredible venues they take place in. Some of these locations the average person will never see.

What events do you attend?

I travel to wakesurfing events in the US. By competing in these events I earn points to qualify for the World Championships. This year, the World Championships were held in Florida. In snowboarding, I compete in the USASA. I compete regionally in the Upper Midwest Region earning points to qualify for Nationals. Snowboard nationals are held at Copper Mountain in Colorado.

Who do you look up to in your profession and why?

In snowboarding, I look up to Jess Kimura. She’s inspiring and she has the most tech tricks! In wakesurfing, I love Taylor Dorey. She won Worlds this year with the most incredible run.

Do you create/co-produce your own video content?

I have family members who film me. I put small edits together for Instagram or Facebook. My season edit for wakesurfing was done professionally this year.

Do you play video games?

I’m not much of a gamer. I prefer to be outdoors!!

Do you belong to any charities or non-profits, do volunteer work?

I am part of Action Sports Ministries. It is a non profit organization that supports our snowboard team.

What are the top 5 brands you’d like to work with?

Roxy, Burton, GoPro, Red Bull and Oakley
