I started skiing when I turned 3 years old and have since then progressively fallen in love with the sport. At 12, I began learning to Telemark. After a couple years of learning the unique style and fluidity of the Telemark turn, I attended a Telemark festival at Bear Valley, CA. Much to my surprise, I found out that, I was fairly proficient at the sport for my age. I took a lesson from a well known Tele skier who urged me to keep developing my skill and pushing my boundaries. He recommended I find a competition to compete in to get a sense of what real big mountain skiing is all about. I entered the 2009 Alpine Meadows Tele Freeskiing Comp as a junior competitor and finished 2nd when I was 16 years old. I competed in the same competition in 2010 finishing 5th in the junior division. That was my senior year of high school, and was my last full winter in California. I am now a student at the University of Oregon where I spend most of my winter in a 500 square foot cabin at Mt. Hood Meadows. I stopped competing my first couple years of college because, 1. I was now eligible for the Mens division, and 2. because there are no tele comps in Oregon. With three years under my belt of balls to the wall skiing, I have greatly improved my ability and am much more confident skiing challenging lines.
Some highlight from my amateur career as a tele skier started when I was 16 and finished 2nd in the 2009 Alpine Meadows Tele Freeskiing Comp. Since I have gone to college, I stopped focusing on competing as much and have channeled my ambition to training. By "training" I really mean having a great time on the mountain with friends, skiing as hard as I can for as long as I can. After three years of fun at Mt. Hood Meadows, I am now entering my 20's and am eligible to compete against talented tele skiers around the country. I am trying to transition back into the competitive community and make a name for myself. Back when I was competing in high school, I had 2 sponsors from 2010-2012, FLUID, and SteelMX/SMX Optics. I did my best to promote both companies, but my skill, focus, and ability to market back then doesn't compare to what I can achieve now. Attending the University of Oregon (a incredibly outdoors oriented college), I am in close proximity with over 20,000 students or possible clientele. I realize I am asking much more out of my sponsors this time around, but there is an abundance of opportunity with what I can do both on and off the mountain for your company, especially with the way I want to promote myself in the ski community. Feel free to contact Fuel Clothing for a reference. Finally, I want to thank you for taking my application and request into consideration. I hope it works out for both of us.
To showcase my season up in Oregon with a couple GoPros, and a shredding team of skiers. Some of our goals include learning Adobe Final Cut Pro to edit our footage and make it as professional as possible. We plan on entering the Mt. Hood Meadows Film Competition and would be elated to add your company's logo as a sponsor to our film. Check out the recent POV edit posted on my profile... Just an early season taste of whats to come throughout this season.
