Skiing History:
The mountains were not big where I grew up in North NJ, but that did not hinder my passion for skiing.  I grew up alpine ski racing on the East coast with Mountain Creek being my home mountain.  I played golf, soccer and ski raced for Nyack College in NY.  After I graduated I followed my passions for skiing and moved to Breckenridge, Colorado.

My Goals and Motivation:

My passion is ski racing!! And that passion propels me to work hard so I can do what I love. I have dedicated the summer to get stronger so that I will be prepared to compete at the highest level. This past Winter was a success for me as I was able to get on the podium at the US Nationals.

My goals for next year are to get a top 10 on the World Cup circuit and to win at the US Nationals.

What I Love About Telemark Skiing:
There is no other sport like Telemark Racing. It is an incredible rush that requires max fitness and technique. Traveling throughout Europe is also a highlight.

Interesting Facts about Myself:
When I am not training or traveling for skiing I am involved in Real Estate in Summit County. I’ve been a Realtor for 7 years and it provides a nice balance between skiing and working. Also, I am a huge golfer!! I love to get out there and play golf.
