I grew up in Billings Montana, skiing Red Lodge Mountain, and Big Sky. Once I graduated high school, I knew I wanted to chase some snow, let skiing define my life. Little did I know that I soon would be wanting to define my own flavor of skiing to the industry.
I moved to Canada to begin school, but more importantly where I had the opportunity to ski on a daily basis. I had a pass to COP which is located in the city and contains a decent park with a number of features. This is where I learned to ski park and throw various tricks from a 180 to a switch 9… I met some good friends in Calagry, namely Todd Williamson who I eventually joined that summer on a trip to New Zealand. I feel like this is when I began to notice a definite improvement in my ability to ski. I worked as a laborer and did my best to ski at Snow Park every day I could.
I eventually moved to SLC, where I currently reside. I met up with Mike Hornbeck who gave me the opportunity to film with Theory-3 media, which has since been absorbed by Poor Boyz Productions, for their film Photoplay. It was then I realized my place in the ski industry was among film. From there I worked my way in front of the camera’s of Level 1 and eventually Teton Gravity Research.

Skiing is my life, my passion. With the addition of new BC freestyle comps I’ll look to get involved as these grow. Otherwise I aim to be at the frontier of film segments pushing the game and innovating freestyle with big mountain terrain. I believe taking advantage of opportunities requires vision, vision to see things that others don’t, doing things that others haven’t done, and that’s where I want to go within skiing.
