Hometown: South Lake Tahoe, CA

Year You Moved to the Mountains: 2010

What Inspired You to Move to the Mountains: Ever since I started snowboarding I wanted to eat, sleep, breathe everything snowboarding. Most other aspects in life took the back burner.

What Do You Do For Work: I wait tables at nights all summer and extremely part-time in the winter. Working nights allows me to ride/play literally every day. I'm also very good with frugality and the art of saving.

Advice to Help Someone Make the Leap to Live Their Life: It's obvious to say, but make whatever you're passionate about a higher priority in your life. Regardless of finances or other life stresses and you will be a much happier human. I don't need much just a few simple things to make me happy. What's the point of life if not to enjoy the ride?
