I have been in involved in Action Sports since I was a child as an athlete, competitor, student, retail and service shop manager, mountain operations manager, designer, photographer, event manager and planner, film and photo shoot manager and mountain operations director.
Most recently, for the past 23 years I have been a Terrain Park designer, builder and operations manager in three countries including Canada, New Zealand and the United States where the Parks I have managed in the US have spent a decade in industry Top Ten rankings, 5 years in the #1 spot, as well as the Parks I have been involved with internationally consistently ranking among the top positions in the industry.
I grew up downhill mountain biking and skateboarding and I still consider myself an expert level mountain biker. Although I would no longer call myself a skateboarder, I have a great deal of ties as well as respect and interest in the skateboard industry. I also love the water - wakeboarding, wake surfing, diving, paddle boarding and surfing rank among my favorite water activities.
I make things happen, I work well with people, I learn quickly, I care about people, I love to challenge myself and I love to see projects through to completion.
