Bio: I grew up following my ski patrol parents around Red and learning all of their favourite stashes, then later discovering some of my own. My formal ski training started with Nancy Greene Ski League at age 6, then transitioned into Freeride at 11. I spent highschool skiing 5 days a week with the Red Freeski Academy and competing in Big Mountain Freeski Competitions all across Western North America, which lead to a hard transition when I moved to Calgary to start university. I wrapped up my degree last year and now I get to spend all of my extra time skiing, climbing, biking and enjoying the beautiful world around us.
