My love for snow sports started at a young age, but my passion for snowboarding began once I was old enough to drive myself to the ski areas.
Throughout college, I managed to ski 80+ days each season, it helped the local ski area was only thirty minutes away! I also discovered backcountry snowboarding offered endless pow turns if I was willing to work for it!
I began working for a local backcountry snowboard binding company while I was in college, which gave me a broader undertanding of gear and only fueled my passion for the sport and the innovations in technology and gear.
Upon graduating from college, I bought and built out a van and traveled to over 30 ski areas across the western United States and Canada. Riding in bounds and in the backcountry over one hundred days offered me a variety of experiences with a multitude of people. It helped me gain a greater understanding of what gear is appropriate for different terrain, abilities, and conditions. I hope I can offer advice to other riders to help them enjoy the sport as much as I do!
