Let me introduce myself. I was born on the 16th of November 1993, a day that will surely go down in history as one of the (for my parents) worst times ever. When I was a wee nipper, the two most important things in the world to me were fitbaw and PS2SSX FTW! , and it was pre­ y much impossible to separate me from my Celtic top. I guess you could say I was a bit of a bammy wee prick. Once I got a bit of hair and such stuff changed though, and soon I was spending most of my time chasing females or getting females (I wish!) These days my perfect day would be wake up (in my dreams my girlfriend would be next to me on the pillow) have a quick… never mind, wolf down some Scottish breakfast (none of that English rubbish) with some OJ before heading out to shred a decent pow day . I’d finish things off by drinking with my mates, with a bit of Lower than Atlantis playing on the stereo. When I’m not at school or work I like to snowboard . My mates take the piss out of me for being ginger but actually, they don’t know what they’re on about cos it’s a god given gift! Prime example is Shaun White… gingers can shred! That’s pre­ y much all you need to know really!

QUICKFIRE (choose one):

Dryslope or dome? Dryslope, but if I could afford the dome it’d be the dome

Frontside or Backside? Backside all the way

Edinburgh or Glasgow? Glasgow Weegies #1

Street rail or rooster tail? Rooster tail

Highlands or Alps? Alps

Kilt or Trousers? Trousers

Guitar or decks? Shredding guitar

Mark McMorris or Marc Frank Montoya? MFM


Big thanks to my parents, Scott Todd from Rome and the whole UK team, Midge at Bawbags, Joe at Park, Ben Kinnear from LSR Project. Special shout to Al Conroy at Freeze Pro Shop, he got me where I am, Chris Meadows for teaching me to snowboard and my whole shred crew. THANKS!
