Tell us about you! How did you get into sport? Where are you from? What is your story? I'm 23 years old from a small town in Ontario. Parry Sound to be exact! Growing up I would've been classified as a "wild child", playing any and every sport that would take me. I inevitably was drawn to action sports. After trying them all from dirt biking to MMA, I settled with Freestyle Skiing. From that point forward I've been training/competing internationally, pushing the sport and myself as far as possible!
What is a fun fact about you or something not many people know about you?
I can do a 3 minute handstand.
What has been your biggest struggle throughout your career? How have you dealt with or overcome that?
The biggest struggle I've faced throughout my career has been the age I started at! I began freestyle skiing at 17 and I've been playing catch up most of my career. The biggest thing I've done to overcome that has been avoiding injuries. As an older athlete, an injury that holds you back from training for 3 - 6 months can be detrimental.
Injury is a part of life, and sport - how did you deal with yours?
I have had to deal with a various array of injuries in my career. My go to method has always been routines, researching the best methods and building a routine around it!
What’s your favourite pre/post sweat snack? Your must have treat? My fav post sweat snack is eggs. I can eat eggs any time of the day so it doesn't matter if it's a morning or evening workout, I like to follow up with an omelette or a "breakfast sandwich"
My must have treat. Dark chocolate with nuts. The darker and nuttier the better.
Do you have any pre-competition rituals? I don't have a pre-competition ritual, however I have a daily routine that I like to hit constantly in the weeks before to build confidence/mindset.
What gets you most excited about being a part of the Stoko Ambassador program?
I am super excited about joining the Stoko Ambassador program, because I can fully put my name/brand behind promoting Stoko! As an athlete and influencer, I believe it's really important to be promoting brands that I love and use on a daily basis!
