I'm a skier based in Seattle working on my PhD in Mechanical Engineering at UW. The goal of my research is to develope accurate models of skiers/snowboarders in terrain parks so features can be safely designed while still allowing them to still go HUGE.

My spare time is spent exploring the Cascades with lots of trips to BC. I try to document my escapes into the mountains as best as possible. I shoot with a Panasonic TM-90 and GoPro.
