My Skiing History:  

Dad was a ski instructor and Mom was on patrol…it was meant to be. I was first on skis before I was even a year old and skiing has been something that has been with me longer than I have memories. I love to ski and to be outside.

My Goals and Motivation: 

To improve myself and to improve my skiing. I just hope to keep getting better each season and to progress. Not to mention the fun along the way. I also hope to continue bringing other athletes into the fold!

What I love about Telemark Racing:         

I was drawn in by the challenge, but the community is what continues to impress me. All of the people committed to racing but also to promoting the sport and the love of skiing. I also love that a Classic can just so completely kick your ass but make you feel so good about just finishing strong.

Interesting Facts About Myself:

I’m an architect in my real life, which is something I’ve wanted to do since I was only five years old! After many years working and apprenticing under other architects, I started my own firm in the spring of 2012 (Inov8 Architecture). I also enjoy racing mountain bikes and off-road triathlons, and sail any chance I get.
