I couldn’t do what I do without the support of my family! I’m blessed to have 3 siblings — an older brother, a little sister, a little brother — and a mom and stepdad who all support my love of snowboarding.
Devin (born 11/25/01) is the big brother I adore, and he snowboards for fun. He prefers exploring the mountain to throwing down tricks in the terrain park. Mogul and tree runs are his favorite. As I’ve progressed at being a maniac mini-shredder, Devin has become the protective big brother who watches over me.
We still argue about which part of the mountain to ride: park vs. back country… and if Devin loses the argument, he is more likely to sit down and pull a book out of his pocket than a 360 on the rails (my big brother is super smart and I’m in awe of his intellectual skills). As he and I get older, it will be interesting to see what kind of role Devin plays in shaping my snowboarding endeavors.
For now, he and I are best friends and worst enemies… and are learning that, whatever happens, nobody has your back like your brother does!
