Biography

blue underline

At a young age, a strong sense of adventure was instilled in me by my parents. They introduced me to skiing and the mountains of Colorado when I was 6, and my fascination with the outdoors began. As a teenager, I discovered the world of "extreme" skiing by watching the athleticism and antics displayed in the early MSP and TGR movies. At the age of twenty, I got a job at a ski shop, and began competing in IFSA big-mtn competitions, where I met many of the people that influenced me as a skier. I started venturing into the backcountry shortly after, where I realized the limitless creative potential, and individual ability to create one's own ski style. Recently I've become a FWQ competition judge, which for me, is a way of giving back to the sport that shaped my current lifestyle. I'm grateful to live the ski bum life I dreamed of as a kid, working hard all summer so I can ski and explore the mountains all winter.
