I started snowboarding because my ski boots were so uncomfortable.
As a stubborn teenager, I didn't take any lessons or research which gear was best for me. It took me FOREVER to learn to ride. Luckily, I am an extremely determined individual. So, after years of maturing into adulthood and lots of days spent in padded shorts, my skill has caught up to my life long passion of snowboarding.
I was born and raised in New England and love to ride at Sunday River in Maine or Burke Mountain in Vermont, where my sister lives and works. However, my greatest days riding have been in Colorado. We get to visit friends and family once every year. The absolute best experience was when my cousin took us on his sleds out to the untouched backcountry behind Keystone. That day, we surfed the snow and it was epic!
My day job (more accurately, my night job) is a bartender at a local watering hole. I love interacting with people and being able to work 2/3 nights a week and play the rest! When there is no snow to ride, you'll find me in my van traveling for mountain biking, surfing, hiking or just camping out. I love being on the road to adventures! And from past experiences, your gear can make or break your adventures. I can't wait to help my fellow adventurers enjoy our passion comfortably and push our limits.
