Bio

I learned how to ski in Vermont while growing up in Connecticut.  Racing at Bromley, just across the way from Stratton, is where I really learned how to ski.  The ice of the East coast really forces you to learn how to use your edges.  When I was 15 my family moved to Colorado where I fell in love with skiing park and eventually big mountain comp skiing.  From competing on the big mountain scene I gained a new view of how to look at and ski the mountains.  It opened up my eyes to more.  Attending the University of Colorado for I was able to go to school and still ski a lot.  This allowed me to be competitive on the big mountain scene and to be able to finish college.  After finishing at CU I spent a season in Vail, and then made my way to Aspen where I have now lived for seven years.  I am never leaving!  The Elk Mountains provide so much inspiration and release, it is an amazing place to call home.
