B.S. in Electrical Engineering – University of Washington

Hailing from Seattle, WA, I grew up spending my time on the water. At a young age, I dove into the world of competitive sailing and began racing small skiffs and dinghies. I continued racing and coaching young sailors while attending the University of Washington and earning a degree in Electrical Engineering. During college, my love for the wind ultimately brought me to the sport of kiteboarding.

After earning my degree, I worked for several years in management consulting and dedicated my free time to chasing wind and waves. I then decided to step away from the corporate world to focus on sharing my passion for kiteboarding. After traveling and working as a kiteboard instructor, I am now thrilled to be joining the WCKA team.

I am excited to help our students pursue academic excellence in tandem with a dedicated focus on kiteboarding progression. WCKA provides the unique opportunity to combine academic, athletic and cultural experiences in a manner that promotes personal growth and a global perspective.
