Growing up in Park City, Utah, could not have been a more ideal childhood. With the Wasatch mountain range acting as a big playground, I was able to seek any adventure. After years of various winter sports, I began freestyle mogul skiing, and that is where the real adventure began. By the time I was 15, I was traveling and competing throughout the United States and Canada on the North American Freestyle Tour. Training five days a week and traveling six weeks out of the year to compete became a conflict with school. However, with my long absences I was still able to balance my passion for skiing with school to maintain a strong GPA. I credit my skiing career as the reason for diligence in my life. It allowed me to accomplish my goals and believe in myself in whatever it is I do.
I was raised with the principle that travel is the ultimate education, and because of this I have been able to travel the world and interact with different cultures, giving me an open attitude towards life. With these experiences I feel that I am able to communicate with all types of people and handle life’s unexpected hurdles with ease. I find that each time I travel I become increasingly aware of the most minute of things, almost seeking an ethnographic experience, whether this is picking up a few words in the language or blindly ordering off of the menu in hopes of trying something new. I am constantly trying to step past the stereotype of a white-sneakered, fanny-pack-wearing American who follows a guide and a precise itinerary, to instead find the heart of the city where the real culture lies.
