My Skiing History:

I started skiing when I was two years old and I loved it ever since. When I was eight I met Birk Larsen on a chairlift in Utah and later that season I was on a pair of telemark skis. I sometimes finish my runs on pins only. My first telemark race was the Alta Sprint Classic in 2018 when I was 10.

My Goals and Motivation:

My main goal is to improve my style and speed every year, on telemark and alpine skis. I always push myself to be better.
What I Love about Telemark Skiing and Racing:

The best thing about telemarking is being on the mountain and finding new turns during the day. I am always looking for jumps…and landing in telemark stance.

Interesting Facts about Myself:

I love challenging myself. I play a lot of soccer with my team here in New York City. I am a drummer, and play in a rock band for fun. I also really enjoy squash, rock climbing, tennis, sailing, coding and being with my family.
