ABOUT ME: I was raised in the mountains of Salt Lake and the deserts of Utah. Learned to ski when i was two years old at legendary Snowbird Resort where my love for only the best powder in the world grew. Spent lots of time camping, biking, hiking, and rock climbing with my parents and ski team throughout my childhood which fostered my appreciation for all things spend doing outside. I now divide my time between school, window washing, summer training, and anything else i can fit in during the off season. I hope to live unreserved and enjoy every moment where i am in control of my happiness.
FILMS OR PUBLICITY: hasn't happened yet
SOMETHING YOU THINK EVERYONE SHOULD TRY IN THEIR LIFETIME: i can't think of one thing but if i could imagine something appropriate to say, There is nothing compared to the feeling of Skiing Trams on a Blue Bird Powder Day with the canyon closed at snowbird, or the feeling of ripping across clear blue Maui waters with a fully powered sail (windsurfing).
CRAZIEST DREAM: I don't believe i've had it yet.
AGE YOU LEARNED TO SHRED: I remember when i was a 2nd Year J5 so about 10 years old, our coach took our group powder skiing. The upper mountain was mostly closed, so we had to find stuff to do until it opened. We found this large open powder field that was perfectly positioned to land in if we jumped off this cat track that was above it. Our coach sent us one at a time with lots of speed off this cat track into this powder field, probably a very unsafe amount of air time for little kids but we did it anyway. I was going last and i wanted to impress all my friends so i did my best to throw a front flip. I had never done this before and even with all my might i only ended up rotating half way into a dive. I landed head first in about three feet of powder, stuck head first and only my skis visible on the top of the snow. My coach had to pull me out skis first because i could not move. Anyway i believe that was the day i learned to shred.
WHAT EXCITES YOU? Listening to Music and more specifically the new Red Hot Chili Peppers Album, or Powder, Powder Will Do
