About the Academy of Skiing
I’ve been skiing since the age of 2 and haven’t looked back since. At the age of 6 I was skiing competitively, racing for Eldora Mountain Ski Club and then Rowmark Ski Academy, until I graduated high school.
I hung up my skis and gave up my prospects for the US Olympic Ski Team in an attempt to take a break from skiing and live a normal life. But the mountains kept calling to me and I had to answer. It wasn’t long before I was out on the slopes with the wind in my face and the snow under my skis once more.
After almost two years of coaching ski racing in college, Big Mountain competitions stole me from my studies and led me on the path I’ve been skiing along for the past 7 years. I’ve chased the Freeskiing World Tour around the globe while living out of my car and sleeping on couches and in hotel rooms. I’ve learned more about skiing and the ski community on the road than I ever could have from skiing at home.
For 2 seasons the road was my home; I was filming, meeting like minded people, and shredding Montana, Idaho, California, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Canada, Alaska and Chile. I ended up in Crested Butte in 2012 for a competition and the valley stole my heart. After some exploration, I decided I was moving to CB. I’ve been nestled in the mountains for the past years continuing my pursuits of skiing and competing.
I am committed to sustainability and mindfulness, determined to battle climate change and better the world through skiing.
