    Considering what you have accomplished so far, what are your goals for the future?
    Just to progress my own riding and try to still come out with my best video part to date. i dont really have goals for the competitive snowboarding any more.
    Do you like the direction that the sport of snowboarding has gone in since you could remember?
    Well, i think its rad the sport is progressing and snowboarding is getting more recognition in the mainstream, but at the same time i feel like snowboarding is losing its roots a bit and its gone too much into spinning and flipping without caring for the style. i think snowboard videos will always stay true to snowboarding and showcase the style and keep that part of snowboarding alive.
    What board are you going to be riding in the12/13 season?
    My Nitro pro model in size 155.
    Whats the hardest thing about your job?
    Being away from home that much and injuries of course. But its still of course the best job in the world for me!
    What movies are u in?
    Ive been filming for the cooking with gas season 2 with Heikki Sorsa and Lauri Heiskari. we will drop our first webisode end of february on www.twsnow.com be sure to check that out!
    Any nutrition secrets?
    haha, not really. i think that you can eat what ever you want as soon as you move a lot.
