Hometown: Aspen, CO
Age: 30 


I started skiing when I was four in Aspen. I competed in half-pipe and slopestyle events though college at the University of Colorado. After college, I moved back to Aspen and began focusing on big mountain skiing. I moved to Jackson in 2013 and I was immediately able to really push my skills in big mountain terrain. After the lifts close, I take my skis and head towards the bigger peaks and couloirs. I've skied almost all of the peaks in the Tetons including the Grand, Middle, and South Teton. I try to ski as early as October and well into July most years.

My favorite ski day was probably during Powder week at Jackson Hole in 2014. It was dumping all day and a group of my friends were in town. I went and hit the Fat Bastard cliff for the first time with Julian Carr in the Jackson Hole sidecountry. We ended the day lapping the tram followed by Après at the base. I couldn't ask for a better day of skiing.

Next Unplanned Trip: I've always wanted to ski in Japan, and after seeing all the photos from the amazing snow and unique experiences last winter, I hope to get there soon.
