Bio: I went snowboarding for the first time at age 19 and fell in love immediately. Soon after, I moved to Big Sky Montana and got a job as a Lift Operator. In my first week of work I was promoted to operate the Lone Peak Tram. I had maybe 20 days of snowboarding total at that point and I was pretty nervous to say the least because the terrain that I had to ride everyday for this job was pretty steep and gnarly. On top of that, the shred expectations of being a Tram Op where pretty high amongst the crew. You were expected to shred, and shred hard. So I did. All day, everyday I was riding the Tram whether I was working or not. Long story short, I was fortunate enough to get paid and learn to snowboard some of the gnarliest inbounds terrain in the country.

Best Snowboarding Memory? The moment when I gave the thumbs up to the helicopter pilot and he lifted off the ridge leaving me in complete silence and awe. I realized where snowboarding had brought me in my life and how much I want to share this love with as many people as I can.

Why Venture? These snowboards live to charge hard and fast. Me too.
