I was born and raised in Eagle, which is a small town by Vail, Colorado. At age 5, I started playing hockey, soccer, and skiing. I currently play Tier I hockey on my Spring High School Hockey team as well as telemark skiing with my family when I can. I would consider myself as an outdoor enthusiast. I enjoy White Water rafting and kayaking on multi day river trips. We often go on 5-9 day trips on Southwestern rivers in Colorado and Utah. Recently, my family and I have traveled to Europe and Central America, exploring and meeting new cultures. My other hobbies that are non sport related is photography which while traveling I spend a lot of time capturing the places I visit. I would like to study environmental science/studies in college. I like earning my own way and being responsible for myself so I have recently started working as an ice hockey official which has really helped my knowledge of the game and I have been really enjoying it. I also work for my family rafting business as a kayak safety boater.
