Bio

I found my passion for water sports when i was three years old and my parents put me on my first wakeboard. From there on my love for water grew and grew and has led me down a pretty epic path. From lakes to ocean to mountains, living in the northwest has been an awesome place to grow and follow my love for extreme sport’s. From a wakeboarding, snowboarding, and skateboarding background, wakesurfing was picked up pretty quick once I got my hands on my own board. From there on I watched every video I could find and rode every day of summer till I was doing tricks that I was seeing on YouTube.

Once I went to my first event in Seattle WA and won the juniors division and picked up a small sponsorship with triple x surf & skim I was dedicated to keep pushing forward. The very next year at the same contest I got put in to the pro division and Finished 3rd. After that I couldn’t get enough and stopped wakeboarding and put it all on wakesurfing. In 2010 I got a new boat and entered my first ever wakesurf event and won. In 2011 I rode every day of my summer and won the amateur world title. In 2012 I rode every contest that season as a pro and Finished second at the world championships. This season I signed with Ski Supreme boats and got a v226 and now on my journey of training to Finnish on top at the world championships.
