What up inter-web surfers! This page is supposed to say something about me. What you should know... I have been snowboarding for over half my life now. A disclaimer; that other half of my life was pretty important too, as well as the other half of my life that I maintain while snowboarding. Now that you're confused, let me say that the shred has influenced me to a huge degree. I have had retarded amounts of fun and good times, on a level that mainstream society would probably deem "unhealthy" or likely to precipitate a lack of true "success" as well as the opportunity to meet some fantastic and amazing people as well as travel to some places my broke ass would never had made it to otherwise. Thank you snowboarding.
About my shredding: I grew up riding the treacherously cold and icy slopes of Vermont. For the most part "powder" and "backcountry" were not a part of my vocabulary, so since moving out west, and encountering the fore mentioned items in abundance, my shred style has been pretty much "give 'er". That is to say, I treat the shred as a singular source of creative physical expression, unparalleled in my other pursuits, intellectual, social, or otherwise. In other words, I like to shred the shit out of whatever's in front of me, with the caveat that I tend to try and limit those things to cliffs, powder, kickers, quarter-pipes, the odd wooden handrail, and whatever else is just lying there. You get the picture. If you treat it right, snowboarding can be truly freeing: I take a unique approach to being a "pro" snowboarder, and I choose to work with companies that do the same. I'm not in this game to get famous and cash out a millionaire. I tried that, and it didn't work. What I gained from that sorry process was re-realizing what anyone who is true to this sport knows: snowboarding is amazing, pure and simple. It comes down to a belief that the shred is the most fun, creative, and enriching way to interact with our natural environment; an experience that continually amazes me. Why am I writing this? It's simple: I back the company that shares that belief: Glissade.
