Born and raised in the great state of Alaska. I have been riding snowmobiles for nearly 20 years and have been a pro for 10 of those. I grew up just north of Anchorage in a small town called Willow. Love to ride dirt bikes, jet skis, and most of all am an avid fisherman.
My career path to become a professional snowmobiler is not that of your typical athlete. I grew up playing hockey and that was my 1st passion. I was able to continue into college and on into the pro ranks for a short time. However as fate would have it I was destined for another sport. Between hockey and my now current status as a full time sledder I was fortunate enough to have worked and worked my way up the cooperate ladder with Wells Fargo. I was the District manager for all of Alaska when I left to pursue snowmobiling full time over 2 years ago. I have competed at nearly every level of Hockey, I have been an executive for a Fortune 500 company and now my full time passion is snowmobiling.
I have raced and competed at every level of sledding that exists to date. I have been and always will be a backcounty rider, Pro Snow cross racer and now ESPN Winter X Games level freestyle rider. My expertise however is the long distance jumping. I am the holder of several World Records with plans to knock down several more Before its all said and done. I am the consummate competitor, l love the fans, and love the industry. I truly am a lucky, lucky person.
