Who brought you into snowboarding? Have you given him any thanks for his influence?
My dad bought me my first snowboard but im not really sure who got me into it... guess it was like skating so i picked it up. Yeah i'v always loved and thanked my parents for respecting what i loved and always had my back.

Who was your local hero?
Sparrow Knox
Where and when was your first snowboardpic published? What trick was it? did you land it?
It was in the avoriaz park brochure and it was a nose grab tail tap on this bonk.
Where was your first video appearence with what music (local snowboardmovie...)?
It was in the purple Yeah video i had like 2 tricks in a part not really sure of the music but it was such a sweet feeling.
How did you get your first sponsor?
I was at this am competition in Avoriaz and got taken in by the french Burton representative.
Would you still ride as much as you can, if no one would support you (no sponsors, no filmers and photographers) ?
Im not sure, i might have skated more cause snowboarding is pretty expensive. But i would for sure never have stopped! 
What is your favourite moment on the mountain?
First lift blue bird on a powder day 
What is the worst time during the time on the mountain?
First lift blue bird on a powder day and forgetting my goggles...
How important is the time on the mountain for you?
How important is music for you on a snowboard movie?
I would say the most important part of the movie. It where all the emotion and hypes come from!
Favourite videopart, ever:
Keegan Valaika in color
The movie as a whole was just too perfect and ending with him was just the cherry on top. BEst song and just sweet smoothest style... 
Have you seen the Whiskey movies?
Black flag and booooozy the clown best combo!
How did you get in contact with the PiRATE project?
Thanks to Burton!
Are you playing any instrument or doing other arty stuff?
Yeah i'v been playing guitar for a while it such a great instrument... but right now im looking into buying myself a drum set been jaming on one all summer and i got to keep making them rhythms, Its so addictive. And for the art's im in a part time digital arts program in Montreal and I love to paint.

How important is it for you to be a part of it?
I guess snowboarding and skateboarding are sports where it is important to combine them. Like i said before a knowledge of music will help for inspiration and a sick video part. For Art it is essential, it has been part of these sports from the beginning and it gives a broader and more interesting vision of our sport.
