I have been skiing shortly after I was old enough to walk. Growing up on the West Coast, only a few hours away from the Sierra Nevada mountains, made it easy for me to get up to the snow once winter has come. I began with a racing background which helped me to develop my skills on the slopes. At the age of 15, I got my first pair of twin-tip skis where I began to pursue freestyle skiing. Having felt confident enough to compete and build a reputation, I have been entering local venues around the Lake Tahoe area. I am now on my way to becoming pro-status and my sponsors are giving me much support to achieve that goal.
