I was born in Syracuse, NY but grew up mostly in Hawaii.
My father is from NY and my mother is native Hawaiian.
I first came to Alta in 2005 after spending six years living in Lake Placid, NY.
I grew up loving the outdoors with much of my youth spent in the Hawaiian surf but truly grew to love the mountains in my time in Lake Placid.
I originally came to Alta to spend a single winter but it only took one massive winter storm to realize this was somewhere that I wanted to spend a good portion of my life.
The following summer just made me fall in love with Alta and the mountains of Utah more.
In the 17 years and counting since, my love for the Utah outdoors has not wavered.
I look forward to working with FOA to help preserve this mountain treasure that we are fortunate enough to share our lives in.
