B.S. Westminster College


I'm from a small town in Wisconsin called Lake Geneva. I started teaching sailing and windsurfing when I was 15 years old. I found it surreal to do what I love and be able to share that passion with other people. In 2012 I moved to Park City after hearing about the outdoor playground Utah offers. I started working at Deer Valley Ski Resort, and later that year was accepted into the Flight Program at Westminster College. I graduated in 2017 with a Flight Operations Degree and now I'm a Certified Flight Instructor at Westminster. I have to take a step back sometimes to believe I get to teach people how to fly. When I'm not flight instructing I run an aerial photography company where I photograph various action sports.


I love kitesurfing on the California Coast, riding my mountain-bike, rock-climbing, sailing on local reservoirs, landing tailwheel planes on grass runways, and snapping pictures of all these sports with my camera!
