What is the purpose? It’s to share my experiences in the world with the world. When I travel, I don’t want to forget the things I do, people I meet, and experiences I have. I used to write a travel journal but now I enjoy blogging. I currently live in Denver. I bought my domain in February 2010 and this blog has been live since 2007 first on Blogger and now on WordPress.
Live, learn, play…
I love to snowboard. I work for an awesome online ski shop called Powder7.com which carries everything you might need for skiing or snowboarding. I used to work with ShredUnion.com, a rad social networking website for snowboarders but it has kind of fizzled out. In college I was the Vice President of our snowboard team. I managed our social media accounts, worked with team sponsors, and organized competitions. We competed in the USASA (United States of America Snowboarding Association) grassroots snowboarding competitions. 2009 was my first year competing (I had never heard of it before). I went to Nationals in 2009 for slopestyle and in 2010 I went for slope and boardercross. When I’m not snowboarding, I longboard, bike, and run.
My current set up:
Sled- Rome Gold 151 (’13), YES Hel Yes 153 (’14) Bindings- Rome Madison Boots- ThirtyTwo Lashed Quick Lace, Deeluxe Empire Lara
Previous gear: sleds- Roxy Ollie Pop 145 (’08), Gnu BPro 149 (’10), DC BFF 148 (’08-09), K2 The Mix (’06), K2 Skylla (’03) Bindings- Bent Metal (’03) Boots- DC, Burton Lodi
Longboard: Bustin Boards Spliff
I’m very involved in the peace education organization CISV International. I volunteer locally in Denver, nationally, and internationally. I’ve been involved since I was little. I’ve spent over 15 years participating, leading, and training. Check out the International website at www.cisv.org or the US site at www.cisvusa.org. Leave me comments or email me if you’re interested in learning more or getting involved.
I’m an MBA candidate at the University of Colorado at Denver and expect to graduate in May 2016. I completed my undergrad (BA) at Boston University in May 2010. I studied International Relations with a focus on Environment and Development and European Studies.
