Growing up I always knew I would like mountain biking, long before I ever actually rode a mountain bike. It was not until college that I had the opportunity to try it out and I immediately fell in love with the sport. I began racing collegiate DH that same year and got hooked on the racing community.
In 2011, I moved to Park City, Utah and discovered the world of Enduro racing. When I am not riding or racing my bike, I work with at-risk youth at a therapeutic boarding school where I teach mountain biking, skiing and ceramics. Although it can at times be challenging to balance work and racing, I love what I do and find that my job helps to keep me grounded and focused.

What are you getting into in 2018? Hopefully not too much trouble. I’ll be living in Boulder for the summer with four of the coolest roommates around, practicing my wheelies, and working part time as an architecture intern. I'm super excited to be riding for the Juliana Free Agents team this season and I'm stoked for racing to pick up in June. So far Downieville, Crankworks Whistler, a few local Colorado races, USAC Nationals, and some collegiate races are on the docket. In between races I'll be getting back in touch with my inner cross-country racer to work on my fitness, and I might even pull out the old lycra kit once in a while. I'll definitely be exploring lots of new trails while gaining those leg watts and pedaling to the top of all the fastest, most fun descents. All of this while hopefully still leaving time to do some woodworking and welding projects before school picks up again in the fall.

Professional skier. I get to travel the world doing what I love, but pursuing my dreams of being the best skier in the world requires me to be on the road most of the year. I don’t get to see my family and loved ones as much as I'd like.
Thing that nobody knows?
I'm really lazy when it comes to doing things I don’t enjoy, like stretching and paperwork.
Favourite local trail?
Crazy train. It's my favourite because it has the perfect balance of steeps and tech, slabs and flow, and is a reasonably easy climb up blackcomb mountain to get to. I probably ride it 3 times a week. Hey Bud is comparable, it's right beside, and is a better option if conditions are pretty slick!
