Ok here’s the thing…I am a Telemark Skier rocking the RED, White and Blue for U.S. National team. When I am not hitting gates with the team I am out in the Backcountry finding fresh snow. I currently reside in the mountains of Breckenridge, CO. New Jersey is home…don’t judge though cuz the Jersey I’m referring to is deep in the woods with bears as my neighbor. Grew up skiing on the hills of Mountain Creek and Hidden Valley. To be honest though, learning to shred on the ICE gives ya quite the foundation to rip later on in life.
It was the Winter of 2011 that my skiing took a turn. Decided to give this Telemark racing thing a try. Traveled West for a few races…did well enough to earn an invitation to the World Championships in Norway. From there back to the US for the Nationals to ski to a third place finish in the Sprint Classic. In June of 2011, was announced to the US National Telemark Ski Team. It begins.
Besides training I still find plenty of time to chase snow and get after it in the Backcountry. Deep snow is a must when it comes to my skiing. I love getting up in the early AM and going for a skin to catch some early fresh turns. Nothing beats endless powder in the BC, especially when the camera is rolling.
