I am a 23 year old pro skier based out of Salt Lake City, UT. I learned how to ski at 1 1/2 years old and have been charging ever since. Whether it was in my mum’s program, CB Cruiser’s, which introduced me to the legendary steeps at Crested Butte, or chasing gates, I loved to be on the hill. I attended high school at Crested Butte Academy and raced for their team until my love for the steep and deep took over. After introducing the idea of a freeride team with my favorite ski buddy, Asher Crank, CBA took on Wendy Fischer, Woody Lidenmyer, and Carrie-Jo Chernoff to help us achieve our dreams. That was in 2004, and the past six years have been a blur of chasing snow storms, making friends, and smiles.
My mum. We moved from Scotland to America and drove around in an RV until she found the right place to call home. Her courage and love for life has always encouraged me to follow my dreams. I'm inspired by laughter, determination, and random opportunities.
A hot cup of tea, laughing with friends, and finding new adventures to go on.
Almonds, cheese, wine.
