I am a professional freeskier based out of Revelstoke BC. I grew up skiing in the Alberta prairies and slowly moved westward into the mountains.  My passion for exploring the mountains on my skis is what drives me. 

My career as an athlete started by competing on the Freeskiing World Tour / Freeride World Qualifier series and working as a professional ski patroller. My main focus is now geared towards shooting with professional photographers, working towards filming, and using my professional design training to develop new innovative technologies within the ski world. I can't wait to cross paths with all of you in the mountains!

I am passionate about seeing the world  and meeting new friends along the way. This page is a visual representation of my experiences as a professional skier.
