I grew up in Indiana far away from the mountains. My athletic background was based in track and field where I was lucky enough to be named a two-time collegiate All-American. Once free from the strict regimen of track workouts I avidly began to blend aerobic fitness with mountain sports. Mentored by one of the Wasatch "light and fast" crew, Jared Inouye, I quickly found himself trying to get as much steep skiing in as possible by using the lightest gear I could find. Now, for the past several years the goal has been to step up the "light and fast" game as it pertains to ski mountaineering.
