Years water skiing/pro:
Started skiing when I was two, first tournament at six, turned pro when I was 17!
What is your favorite thing to do when you are not water skiing?
My favorite thing to do when I'm not booting big jumps? Hmm, where do I start. This summer I have got really into disk golf with the boys. Hitting up Daytona Beach and Cocoa Beach in attempts of catching some waves. Learning how to surf has been a blast! I pretty much love doing anything outside. If it's outside, you name it, chances are I have done it!
Where is your favorite place to ski?
I lived in England for three weeks with my college roommate and I skied a few pro stops over there. What a blast! Hanging out in a totally different culture was awesome. Learning how to drive on the "wrong" side of the road was even more awesome! But a close 2nd is my most recent trip to Russia for the Worlds. Talk about a language barrier. But I had a blast learning the city with all my buddies.
Tell us something that most people don't know about you.
Wow, theres not much people don't know about me. But I used to wakeboard a lot in competition. Actually, he may not know this, but I beat a fellow Nautique rider, Bob Soven, way back in the day. Hopefully you're reading this Bob... rematch???

Do you do anything before a contest for good luck?
I personally prefer a nice book and a warm cup of tea. I really like to relax and curl up under a shady tree to envision myself on the water, or, hang around the dock with my buddies and pump each other up for a jump set. More often than not, choice two is usually what happens.
What has been the biggest accomplishment of your career?
Signing with Nautique Boats for sure! It's the boat I grew up behind and always had loyalty for. Being a part of the Nautique Team is awesome! Winning a few pro events, that's a close second!
If you could give someone one piece of advice, what would it be?
Express yourself and be yourself. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't accomplish a goal of yours!
