I was born in Hailey, Idaho on June 10 1989 and grew up racing both alpine discipline(2-14) and nordic, skate and classic disciplines(14-18). After high school I moved to Canada where I completed a semester at UBCO. While at college, I focused my studies on astrophysics, and graphic design. After a semester I dropped out to focus on skiing career. My skiing sponsors have included: Black Diamond Equipment, Cross Skiwear, Smith Optics, Beyond Coastal Sun Care, Chumbs, Skida, Discrete Headwear, and Sun Valley Resort. Recently my aspirations to be a pro skier have been overwhelmed by the excitement of starting my own company, Black To Life LLC. .
