Number of years of experience : I started snowboarding at about 4-5 years old, I've been snowboarding for about 16 years. I started riding in the snowpark at 14 when I joined Claude-David Gaudreault's snow study sport. At that time Nicolas Tremblay took me under his wing with Philippe Couture.

Your grass roots? Where you learned to ride : I remember that I was riding at Mont Fortin and I was so bad that I did 2 laps in one day… Without forgetting to specify that I took the small pommât next to the chalet, but that it took me 3 years to succeed in my make it to the top because I was falling all the time. I think I hiked more often than I took the flesh ahaha!

Influence in snowboarding : Part of what got me into snowboarding was meeting my best friends who I knew I was going to ride with for the rest of my life. We always rode together and always pushed each other to do new tricks. But I think the two people who helped me realize that I could push and improve even more were Nicolas Tremblay and Claude-David Gaudreault. Some time later I joined the Homies snow team and even if it's not the biggest Board Shop in the universe, it was the greatest gift for me. Just knowing that Alex Gagnon wanted me to represent his shop as an amateur skateboarder with Philippe Couture was just insane no joke. We were given stock, we arrived at the shop and everyone knew who we were, in short it was really rewarding and I will never forget all the fun I had when I was in the Am/ies (rider amateur Homies. Now I'm in the big leagues with Nicolas Tremblay, Philippe Couture, Thomas Folly, Jonathan Truchon, Xavier Boudreau and our new kid Alexandre Vézina (guys from snowparc and street obviously)! had the most fun and proudest of me in my life was snowboarding with them.

Fun fact: At snowmission 2018, after the final I made a last jump except that I overshot the sweetspot and I landed on the face… I got a gigantic black eye. It was the after party 1h30 later… I looked hollow. But I was cute the same. I still managed to have an eventful evening……….

Equipment 2019-2020: I've always wanted to ride Burton so right now I'm riding the Free and the Deep Thinker (157cm and 163cm) and I have the white Cartels. An all white set up with SLX boots.
