I have been skiing ever since I can remember.  When I was five years old I joined the Mammoth race team and became a weekend warrior. That meant I would drive 5 hours from LA to ski every weekend in Mammoth, and that is when I fell in love with skiing. I moved to Mammoth to pursue my dream of becoming a pro skier when I was 15 and I have not looked back since. 

 

My goals for this upcoming season are to podium in a North American Cup and to film an edit that I am really proud of. My long-term goals are to compete in contests such as X Games and the Olympics and podium. I also want to participate in ski movies and film projects. I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for me as I work hard and ski hard to reach and get closer to obtaining my goals.
