I fell in love with snowboarding in the mid 80’s and it as grown even more as I find new places and ideas to expand my imagination through snowboarding. I’m a big fan of building vehicle for the adventure of chasing snow, And chosen to live in the deep of donner summit ca. Coming from a wood working background Nidecker was the perfect match. I’ve become a family man last couple years which has made me even more passionate about creating spaces in the snow world for all ages to experience snowboarding, it’s such a unique experience to stand sideways riding down a mountain.
