How was the FWQ season for you this year?

I started off the season on the FWT, I felt good going in but covid had other plans. The new format allowed me to go back to FWQ finals, and I Crystal provided with the best conditions and one of the most fun comps I've ever ridden in. The next two were challenging conditions but I was super stoked on the level of riding on the fwq, and beyond stoked to get another shot at the FWT.

What are you up to this summer preparing for FWT? Any exciting projects planned?

This summer I'm working as the assistant camp director at a summer camp, and spending the spring and summer teaching science to kids in the woods. I'm hoping to get some summer boarding done on my weekends.

Anyone you look up to or inspires you? Anyone you look forward to competing with on FWT?

I really look up to Desiree Melancon, her advocacy for mental health in the snowboard world inspires me, and she has unreal style. I'm looking forward to chillin with everyone on tour, especially the North American pals and fellow Canadian Liv McNeill.
