Born and raised on the east coast, I became embedded in the natural and city landscapes from early on.
Raised as a dogsledder from a young age, I spent my early years training from the Pine Barren forests of New Jersey to the northern landscapes of the New England and Canadian mountains. I became a key player in the family career of professional dog sledding.
My early years also fostered the love of skiing being the son of winter enthusiasts. With the introduction of snowboarding to the east coast in the late 1980's, after-school endeavors took a turn to a new mountain interest. This, mountain biking and skateboarding became the driving forces and influences shaping facets of my life. These influences turned my career towards business within their respective elements. Their industries offered life and health in the mountains, forests and urban landscapes but also kept a keen interest in the businesses needed to represent, sustain and maintain these sports as well as documenting the lifestyles and influences through mediums of photography, design and artistic interpretations.
Evolving through these industries at all levels, I have continued my career through them as life made it’s way to the western United States. Living in Lake Tahoe my career has expanded to present endeavors such as continuing as a member of the National Ski Patrol, becoming a professional outdoor backcountry guide, a backcountry trail builder/manager, research & development test rider for outdoor companies and as a still photography and cinematography production artist.
In the realms of action sports I remain as a positive influence and representative for my companies and sponsorship influences. My experience and training in television and media production provides excellent opportunities for development of your market value. Commercials, interviews, social media, snow & weather monitoring and other avenues are developed and managed daily in my endeavors to you and provides valuable feedback and insights into your offerings. Having the opportunity to be part of each companies team is a gift that cannot be overlooked and is enjoyed each and every minute I am involved.
