Favorite thing about being on park crew: Park crew is family and that’s probably my favorite thing–having a group of like-minded homies who have my back. Big shouts to JH Park and Pow, I love you guys! But it’s also pretty cool that we get paid to snowboard and exercise, learn and improve ourselves and our techniques continuously, and create fun for others–especially the kids!

Words of wisdom: When my boss hired me he said, “You gotta have a thick skin and take everything with a grain of salt.” I think that’s pretty good advice for park crew and life.
