July 1990 - I’ve lived in Nelson since elementary school. It’s been an amazing place to grow up. My girlfriend and I recently moved back to town after a few years spent in Northern BC. It’s a great feeling to be back and getting settled into our amazing community again.
Snowboarding has been a massive passion for me. It has truly shaped me into who I am today and has introduced me to so many amazing people and close friends. My passion has taken me to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and all over North America. I’ve ridden inside of a volcano, lived out of my car for months surviving off Mr.Noodles and PBR’s, froze to what felt like near death in a non winterized RV, belly crawled over terrifying ridges, and survived many, many hangovers. I’ve been fortunate enough to work as a guide for the past 8 years and I truly love it. Being in the mountains and sharing my love of the sport has been an extremely rewarding career. Recently we've started our own business in town to share this love and also expanding into the amazing world of Mountain Biking.
I have personally gone through a lot of life changes this year. Being outdoors and physically active has really driven me to be a happier and a healthier version of myself both physically and mentally. By joining the Power by You team, I will have support and guidance to overcome injury in sport, keep a clear mind, become stronger on board and bike, and have the opportunity to share this with others!
I’d also like to thank my supporters who have helped me along the way…
And my Love, Nicole.
