"To succeed you need to believe in something with such a passion that it becomes a reality" 

-Anita Roddick 

It's about the journey not the destination.

It is with a heavy heart that I have not made the team to go to PyeongChang Winter Games next month. I am very grateful for all who I have met and for all who have helped me reach extraordinary heights over my journey. I will continue to snowboard in a different capacity. I will still bring the same sense of adventure and determination with what I choose to do next. The lessons I have taken from failure will make me a better mentor and stronger person. I have been through it all now messy contracts, appeals, arbitration, successes and disappointments. I know the signs of when something devious is happening and when you need to address it. 

So when you don't make the team you go ride some powder for the soul. Below is my Fernie, BC edit.

Huge THANK YOU to all who came to my gala!  We had so much fun
