Mountain landscapes are a common motif in your art. Why mountains?
I just fell in love with the mountains. Seeing these landscapes and traveling around the world in these incredible locations—I wanted to capture that feeling that the mountains gave to me.
You’ve been chasing powder since snowboarding’s early days, before half of today’s riders were even born. How have you seen the sport evolve? How has your riding evolved?
Over the last few decades, I’ve seen snowboarding evolve from a small group of rebels into a mainstream sport that’s widely known and for the most part “accepted” these days. As far as my personal path goes, my riding has evolved into a way of life focused on living and raising a family in the mountains.
What do you love about snowboarding?
Ridiculous missions into hostile environments… or maybe just a good session at the hill with friends and family.
How has snowboarding influenced the art you create?
The pursuit of riding keeps me “in spirit”. I’m always on a mission seeking new experiences exploring and riding the mountains. It is this influence that guides and dictates everything I do in my life. It’s a powerful force. Fuel for daydreams and creative visions.
