BIOGRAPHY

  • Black Facebook Icon
  • Black Instagram Icon

     Considered one of the most well-rounded professional snowboarders in the world, Leanne has won Snowboarder & Transworld Magazine's esteemed Female Rider Of the Year Award, Transworld Reader's Choice Award and appeared on the 2014 ESPN's Top 50 Women of Action Sports list. With over 10 video parts in Standard Films, Misschief, P.S., and two of her own previous produced Runway Films movies, she is at it again producing and directing her third film 'Full Moon' with some of the best backcountry women on the planet.

     In her down time, you will find her in Oregon at High Cascade Snowboard Camp as a signature session'er and exploring the west coast, camping in her BigFoot camper with her fiancé Jeff Keenan and their dog Keita. Leanne is also an active member on the rider's alliance for Protect Our Winters, the leading advocacy group for the winter sports community in the movement against climate change.

"I grew up scouring the pages of snowboard magazines looking for girls that I could aspire to become one day. All I wanted was some sort of proof that one day pro-snowboarding could be a 'job' or maybe far away in my dreams, a reality. I watched snowboard movies over and over and wanted to emulate Tara Dakides' and Barrett Christy's every move on a snowboard. Back then, it was few and far between having role models to see. Fast forward to realizing my dream of snowboarding for a living, I aspired to create a dream project with a legendary crew. My intention and mission with Full Moon is to film some kick ass snowboarding and pay tribute to all the inspirations of the past, present and future. This is my way of giving back to the sport that has given so much to me. We're all doing what we love and

I hope to inspire people to do the same."
