What is your Favorite TV Show or Movie? I really don’t watch much tv. I do watch tons and tons of wakeboard videos!
Band you love to listen To? No one band specifically. I am always looking for songs for my next insta edit though.
What do you do when you’re not riding ?I love the gym. I also spend a lot of time jumping on my trampoline, hanging with friends and playing with my dog Ollie.
How did you Get Into the Sports? My dad and his friends used to pretend that they could wakeboard (haha) and I wanted to try. One weekend we were in Orlando and saw OWC. My dad got me a lesson there with Jon Bemis. I fell in love right away and the rest is history. That was when i was like 6 years old.
Do you have a role Model? If so Who and Why? I am surrounded by so many amazing people in this sport that its hard to have one one role model. My coach Travis Moye is an incredible person, and he is for sure one of my favs. But there are so many more, like Tarah Mikacich, Dallas Friday, Charlotte Bryant, Courtney Angus, Meagan Ethell and the list goes on and on!
Proudest Moment on Life? Don’t know for sure, but i was pretty pumped about winning Slider Spectacular two weeks ago.
Which trick has been the Toughest to dial and how did you do to Master It ? It took me forever to hang on to my backroll. I would ALWAYS ditch the handle. Ditched it for over a year. Finally mastered it when my dad made me swim back to the house. It worked. Thankfully it wasn’t a far swim.
What Was your worst Injury ? How did you work your wayback? I had a scratch once.
What’s your irrational fear that no one knows about ? I am not scared of much. Bugs, spiders, snakes and stuff like that dont bother me. I am however scared to try a tantrum. I am working on overcoming this as we speak!
Favorite Riding Moment ? Favorite riding moment for sure was the two weeks I spent in Australia riding with Courtney Angus at Cables and Scotty Kell. I can’t wait to do it again. Time of my life.
What would you be doing if you weren’t in Wakeboarding ? I can’t even begin to imagine life without wakeboarding.
