HOW DID YOU FIRST GET INVOLVED IN THE COMP SCENE?
I started competing in Freeride in 2006 at the NZ Freeride Competition at Treble Cone, Wanaka New Zealand, which is now the North Face Frontier Freeride event. Once I returned to Europe I started competing in the Rookie Quest Qualification Competitions at the very beginning of the FWT and also competed in some individual stand alone Freeride Competitions around Europe and the World. This eventually lead to competing on the FWQ Tour for many years from it’s beginning. I used to ski a lot with Jason Schutt, who used to compete in the old Freeskiing World Tour, when I was around 18-21 so I have to thank him for the influence he had on me. I also have to thank my riding buddy’s from my earlier years who gave me a lot of inspiration and influence as well- Joe Harkess, Joe Tyler, Nick Harkess and Roman Rohrmoser.
