Skier, Artist, Writer and Snow Reporter.
As an impressionable teenager, I was thrust into the intoxicating world of powder skiing and extended hang time when I was kidnapped by a renegade group of ne’er do wells known as the Jackson Hole Air Force. In the ensuing years, I’ve been deployed on countless deep powder demolition missions and big air bombing runs. My unyielding goal is to experience fresh, breakthrough moments through skiing and art, while encouraging others to abandon their own limiting perceptions. In the winter months I focus on creating high grade ski images and delivering snow and weather updates for the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. During the summer I direct the creative flow towards fabric dying and painting, while contemplating the memories of things yet to come.

What do you do to create balance in your life?
I find balance in life is, conversely created by consciously knocking yourself out of your comfort zones. Peak experiences followed by centering reflection...repeat.
What inspiration do you find in the outdoors?
I find inspiration to get outdoors in the stark contrasts found in nature. The silence of an empty frozen forest compared to the chaotic fury of a wind blasted ridge, or the amazing color of blue sky behind a field of wildflowers vs a monochromatic summit on a greybird day. The blazing heat and the bitting cold. These are the things that bring me out.
What does Let The Outside In mean to you?
The best way to let the outside in is to be fully “with it”; To completely immerse yourself in the moment and to throw all conscious technique to the wind. By not trying to steer the ship we are free to ride the wave wherever it wants to flow.
