    My parents had me on skis as soon as I could walk and I've been hooked ever since. I spent most of my childhood and teenage years doing whatever I could on skis to get in the air. This mainly consisted of laps in the park and jumping off any natural features I could find. Through my 20s I became more interested in growing my overall skiing ability and becoming a more well rounded skier. I learned as much as I could about technique and gear to help grow my skills. Now I have fallen in love with the backcountry and ski touring and taking all the things I've learned in my time skiing and applying them there.

    Now my wife and I live in a 37 foot converted school bus traveling the country with the main goal of being in the mountains and enjoying what we are so passionate about. We ski almost a 50/50 split of resort and backcountry with our main goal to be on snow and in the mountains as many days of the year as possible.

    Prior to working at Curated I was an aerospace engineer working on fighter jets for 6 years.

    Fantastic Advice
    I really enjoyed working with David. He really took my skiing experience and style into consideration and I ended up purchasing the first ski he recommended. Before that, though, he adjusted my curations as I thought more about what I was looking for in my next set of skis. Ultimately, Curated didn't have the make and model that I was looking for in the 2022 version, so I purchased from my local ski shop, but I'll absolutely come back to Curated first for any future ski needs.

    Cassie's experience with David
    Great experience - I honestly initially signed up just to see what my curations would be, but after asking SO many questions and getting thoughtful, real responses from David each time, I WANTED to buy through Curated to get him the support he deserves. Great experience overall and would definitely recommend that anyone use Curated - I've already recommended it to a few folks.

    Like talking to a very knowledgeable friend
    I initially heard about Curated from my husband. Quickly signed up without his referral link, but I didn't mind. I am so happy I was matched with David as my professional. It was like I was talking to a friend - granted a very knowledgeable friend - about ski gear and apparel. He was very easy to talk with, answered ALL my questions and was very personable. Never made me feel like I was taking too much of his time, which I appreciated! Thanks David, you da best!

    David checked all the boxes for how to communicate and approach the vast world of ski gear for a newbie. He always had an answer to my question and answered with honesty and without overcomplication. Super personable and easy to talk with. I have learned so much and wish him nothing but success.

    Attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly service
    David’s service has been incredible. He provided a number of excellent equipment recommendations and helped me understand the differences in ski types, material, and performance. He really knows his stuff and it honestly felt like I was shopping with a friend. He was also really attentive to our needs and worked effortlessly to ensure equipment was delivered on time. He jumped in to solve a shipping delay that was out of his control. I hope to shop with David again in the future.

    Rebekah's experience with David
    David was amazing! I know absolutely nothing when it comes to getting my own gear for skiing so I was nervous to purchase. He was so helpful and gave me a concise list of suggestions with all their pros and cons for everything from skis, to boots, to pink helmets! Curated as a whole made it very easy and seamless to purchase everything from the same place without sacrificing quality or breaking the bank.

    The Best Ski Shopping Experience I've Ever Had.
    I was apprehensive at first about shopping online for skis, but holy cow was I impressed with David. Absolutely no pressure to get something I didn't need/want, taking away the frustration I experience at local stores. He answered all of my ridiculous questions and provided phenomenal feedback on my specific needs and interests. Factoring in my NSP and military discounts on other sites, I still went with David's phenomenal deal. I am referring him to all of my friends/colleagues. David is AMAZING!!!
