Hola! I've been standing sideways, skating and snowboarding since 1986, and the stoke only continues to grow! I've always been a gear nerd, love tuning my own gear, and am a huge fan of refining the essentials.
Wisconsin-born and New England-raised, I found my way to Colorado and western powder in 1999. I got into the service industry initially to free up weekday powder turns, backpacking, and road trips, and soon fell in love with the biz for about 20 years -- bartending, running bars, restaurants, and breweries. These days, I do a little bit of everything, spending as much time in the woods with my twins, Wyatt and Lucy. Now nearly 13, it's fun to see them really start to develop their own style on the mountain. I'm still riding hard, finding time for bigger lines, steep trees, and deep pow anytime I can!
I love helping others experience at least some of the joy I find in the mountains, and having the right gear is a big part of that. I've taken a ton of gear a ton of places. Hit me up and let's grow the stoke!
