I have been snowboarding for 25 years, starting in a time when snowboards were still rare to see on the mountain. In that time, it has been my passion and the place I have truley found joy.
In my youth I competed in slopestyle, half-pipe, and boarder cross throughout the Northwest region of the United States. I have worked numerous jobs related to snowboarding - the first being a chairlift operator (I stopped doing this job because I did not get to ride enough). After that, I worked as an instructor, in demo shops tuning peoples gear and getting them the right set up and later as a snowboarder on ski patrol. Now, I work nights and snowboard daily.
