My Skiing History:

My parents put me on skis before my first birthday, they towed me around the driveway and I loved it! I grew up skiing Cannon Mt. and we traveled to telemark festivals around New England. I started telemarking full-time 4 years ago.

My Goals and Motivation:

Not being able to race last year has only increased my excitement for this upcoming season. Sadly I wasn’t able to get in gates often so improving there is a huge goal of mine, as well as just pushing myself and seeing how far I can go. I feel like most of my motivation comes from my love for this sport, I just want to do it all the time and do it really well.

What I Love about Telemark Racing and Skiing:

I love how fun it is, the versatility of telemark skiing is unmatched by any other snow sport and the feeling of ripping down the mountain with your heels free shooting around trees is just heavenly. Not to mention the crew that comes with it, telemark skiers are just the best people you’ll ever meet. Everyone’s here to have a good time and share this awesome sport, with some friendly competition of course.

Interesting Facts About Myself:

I really enjoy listening to and creating music, I play saxophone, guitar, piano, and meddle with synths. I play soccer, cross country ski, and do tennis. I really enjoy being outside mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, and camping!
