He has won a total of 15 medals as a frequent competitor in the X-Games, 4 of them gold in the Vert, Vert Double, Big Air, and Best Trick categories. He has also been a champion on the Dew Tour and in the Gravity Games, and was the winner of the vert division of the Maloof Money Cup with a wide array of technical flip tricks and spins including a nollie heelflip indy 540.
