"All my life I have been infatuated with the outdoors” says every Tahoe native. He took full advantage of growing up with Tahoe as his playground spending every possible moment - rain or shine - mountain biking, climbing, trail running - you name it! However, his true passion lies with skiing. He first learned to ski when he was 1 ½ years old and never looked back. After countless years of competing in every discipline from slopestyle to big mountain and over 25 years of skiing experience he finds great pleasure in pushing his limits, exploring the mountains, and sharing his passion and experience with others. When he's not working at the Mountain Shop he can be found coaching freeride skiers, climbing snowy peaks, or hootin’ and hollerin’ while skiing off the summit of a mountain somewhere - in pursuit of face shots.
