In his own words:
I'm an avid backcountry skier in Utah, splitting my time between the resorts and backcountry, averaging over 70 ski days per season. I was born and raised in Colorado where I became an expert skier on the resorts around Aspen. I had my first backcountry ski experience while climbing and skiing down Mount Sopris, a nearly 13,000 foot mountain that towers above the town of Carbondale. From then on, I was hooked.

After graduating from Colorado Mesa University with degrees in Mass Communications and English (with an emphasis on writing), I moved to Salt Lake City where I currently work as a TV news videographer and editor for the NBC affiliate, KSL. My work schedule allows me to ski pretty much any day I want, which affords me the luxury of exploring the entire backcountry of the Central Wasatch Range.

I'm also a freelance writer, with outdoor recreation articles published in the Mountain Gazette and the Utah Adventure Journal where I also have a column titled: “The Outdoor Life.” I have online publications at Snowlist.com and Examiner.com, and am the owner and editor of UtahOutside.com, a website dedicated to bringing daily outdoor news, information and adventure articles to my readers.
