I was born in Wisconsin and raised in Alaska. My parents skied recreationally in their early adulthood and introduced me to it in the backyard when I was young. I grew to love it, and loved the hard work of training and racing, so I kept going. I now race professionally on the Davis US Cross Country Ski Team, and travel the World Cup in the winter. I’m also taking classes at the University of Alaska Anchorage, working towards a Civil Engineering degree.
