A little about me: 

Like most mountain folk, I’d consider myself an outdoor enthusiast; 73% solar-charged. I hail from the suburbs of New York, although I attended the University at Buffalo, where my passion for outdoor adventure really began to take root.  I moved to Breckenridge during the 15/16 winter season, where the adventures were never-ending. After logging just shy of 100 cumulative days in one ski season, some would call my love of skiing and boarding an addiction. During the summer months, I like to torture myself with scenic hikes, mellow climbing, and some good ‘ole car camping. When I’m not on the hill, I enjoy photography, painting, reading, and hanging with friends (and their dogs). But don’t let any of that throw you off; I’ve managed to engage in these activities leisurely and with a cucumber sour crush in hand!
