Considering what you have accomplished so far, what are your goals for the future?
I’m grateful for all i have accomplished but still have lots of short time goals that are mostly snowboard contest and they built my actual career
Do you like the direction that the sport of snowboarding has gone in since you could remember?
Even though there hasn’t been much change in many old style minded organizations I can see that this is already a respected sport, practiced by very many people all around the world of all the ages and cultures and this is great,  I like how the whole idea of snowboarding related with laziness its each time less heard, and this is beacause the level at the moment its so high that it requires hours and hours of work inside and outside the snow, if you really want to do good in the top field
What board are you going to be riding in the12/13 season?
I have my pro model Yonex snowboard it’s a 143 cm complete carbon fiber board really light and reactive… loving it
Whats the hardest thing about your job?
Without any doubt the so long time away from my family and friends. For some reason each year im busier than the year before and i have less time to be with them, although i talk with them often and i know that they are following  all I do, it is very hard for me.

Any nutrition secrets?
I have to say that being on the road all the time really effects me if I don’t eat healthy food, I always try to mix anything with a green salad and don’t eat fatty things, I’m not really into any diet but personally I eat a lot of meat and it’s a thing that my body just needs really often, a big peace of steak a couple of times a week it’s crucial for my food routine
What are you doing when your not snowboarding?
When it’s summer and I’m on vacation I like to go to the beach and chill do some fishing and things that are very different of what I do during the winter
At what age did you start snowboarding? Were you on Ski’s first?
I start snowboarding when i was 7, my parents were already  practicing it and as soon as i had enough strength to keep myself on a board I started. I did use plastic skis when i was like 4 a couple of times but that was all, my parents really enjoyed snowboarding so they wanted me and my brother to get into it and be able to have fun as well
