We all know Canada doesn't see the best weather this time of year... How have you been passing the winter months?

Where have you been getting most of your sessions in? In Ottawa, it's very hard to find anywhere to ride during the winter. I mostly head to Montreal to ride Taz and do a few trips to Joyride 150. When I'm not out riding during the winter, I play a whole bunch of Call of Duty and some guitar occasionally.


What are your plans once the weather warms up? Any trips you're trying to make happen?

My plans are to start filming as soon as we can ride outside! I would also like to ride a bit more street this year. You will most likely find me at a park though. Haha. I would like to go ride the Louisville skatepark in Kentucky. It's been a dream of mine for a few years now and I think this year is the year I go.
