My brother is the craziest skier I know, because he only skis a few days a season and SENDS IT.

My favorite dish at Thanksgiving dinner is the stuffing.

Filming with TGR is efffffing awesome.

“I ski black diamonds” is the best pick up line that has been used on me. 

I started skiing when I was 3…. ish

My favorite grade in school was 1st because I learned about centrifugal force and I discovered Luke Skywalker.

The best meal I’ve had in the past month is fish tacos…. finished them 5 minutes ago, fish was caught 1 hour ago.

Yesterday, off a sand dune was the last time I did a spread eagle. 

One place everybody should visit is The Grand Canyon (cliche–but so incredible).

Coke from a gas station fountain is my favorite type of soda. 

Something you might not know about me is I’m good at doing hair. 

If I were in a street fight i’d bring a granade.

My favorite color growing up was sparkle now it is sparkle

One thing I take skiing with me everyday besides my gear is lip screen. 

“Sit on the toilet for a bit, you’ll feel better” are words to live by.
