My Skiing History:

I started skiing at two years old. My first time on skis was on the awesome mountains of Vancouver, BC. A serendipitous moment a few years ago was when my brother and I rode up a chairlift next to Birk Larsen who got us interested in trying telemark skiing. Now I spend all my ski days freeheeling. My first telemark race was at the Alta Sprint Classic in 2018 when I was 12.

My Goals and Motivation:

My main goal is to enjoy making great tele turns down the slopes! I am always trying to get faster.

 

What I Love about Telemark Skiing and Racing:

The best thing about telemark racing is spending so much time with awesome friends on the slopes and being inspired by all the other great skiers.

 

Interesting Facts about Myself:

My favorite thing is being with my family. I love sports. I love music. I love being with my friends on sports teams that include soccer, volleyball, basketball, and track & field throughout the year. I had the opportunity this past year to perform in a production of 42nd Street to the original Broadway choreography here in New York City. I love taking on new challenges and trying new things!
