B.A. in Supply Chain Management with distinction – University of Nevada

Hailing from Park City, Utah — a small mountain village in the Rocky Mountains — I grew up ski racing competitively. Ski racing was my passion, and as I became better in the sport I traveled internationally to compete. While in high school, I learned to balance a challenging course load while being on the road competing.

I attend University of Nevada, Reno and competed on their Division I ski team. I majored in Supply Chain Management which combined my interests in working with people and mathematics. Since learning to kiteboard, the sport has been a huge part of my life. I traveled internationally to quench my thirst to see the world and to progress my riding. I am always on a quest to find the perfect flat water spot or the perfect kicker.

Lindsay McClure and I were the first teachers at World Class Kiteboard Academy, and I have been the head coach since day one. I love sharing my passion with students and helping them bring their riding to the next level. I believe that the support students receive on the water at World Class is unparalleled in kiteboarding, and it has been incredible to watch good kiteboarders progress into future champions.
