Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
I grew up rafting with my parents and realized from a young age that whatever I ended up doing, I wanted it to be outdoors.
After high school, I worked as a river guide on the Salmon River in Idaho.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in parks, recreation, and leisure studies from the University of Idaho—the major opened my eyes to a wider range of activities beyond river guiding.
After graduating, I moved to Big Sky, Montana, for one winter and realized how much I enjoyed the mountains.
I then moved to Washington and worked in outdoor education for kids—I liked the impact I could make in that space, so I decided to move to Hong Kong to continue with outdoor education.
When I moved back to the U.S., I got involved with adaptive sports—I taught ski lessons to people with disabilities and found a passion for helping others accomplish the sport.
I earned my master’s degree in movement and leisure science, and then spent a few years working for a physical therapy program in Utah while my wife pursued her degree.
My wife and I both found opportunities to do what we love in Wyoming, so we moved to Jackson, where I currently work as the adaptive supervisor for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

Day to Day

My work changes by season, which I love. As a supervisor, a lot of my time is spent in the office. I handle all of the scheduling for our programs and I make sure all of the instructors are set and have everything they need. The first few hours of my work day are typically spent resolving all of the small issues and conflicts that arise each day. I also spend time planning out future trajectories for our programs. And finally, I get to spend time outdoors teaching some of our lessons.

From Myself:

"Am I just not intelligent enough to succeed?"
