Occupation: Former Powder Associate Editor, freelance writer
Grew up in Bend, Oregon, skiing Mount Bachelor. One eye-opening trip to Chamonix during a study abroad in France changed everything. Powder internship to a season in Jackson to a job with Powder. Seven years in Southern California working for Powder and Oakley, trying to finagle as much ski travel as possible. Moved to Aspen for a PR job and a season pass. Traded steady paycheck and insurance to ski all day and write all night. Storm chases to satisfy incessant hunger for deep, overhead pow days. Other cravings: Nice long tours, Sierra windbuff, multi-day backcountry adventures, high alpine bowls, hut trips, and spring corn on Northwest volcanoes.
