Year You Were Born: 1986
Hometown: Millville, PA
Year You Moved to the Mountains: 2012
Current Mountain: Where I can have the most fun possible on any given day.
What Inspired You to Move to the Mountains: I grew up as much of a ski bum as you could be in rural Pennsylvania, and that all got put on hold while I was in the military. So once my I decided to take the next step in life, something told me "Go West, Young Man," and Colorado's Rocky Mountains called my name!
What Do You Do For Work: I do whatever it takes to keep my ski seasons going. My main job though takes me overseas during the summer to protect people who work in dangerous environments. I totally value being of service to others, so I gladly sacrifice my time at home to help them get their job done, and keep my winters on snow.
Advice to Help Someone Make the Leap to Live Their Life: If you have a dream, you have to go chase it, but you have to make your goals bigger than yourself. Fulfillment in our lives, and impacting others in a positive way will keep you happy for all your years. Living that dream is not easy, and you always have to remember that, but it is completely worth it.
