More Info... I started skiing when I was 13. When I got to college I decided I wanted to try out the ski bum life and ended up living in my car and traveling around until I was able to weasel my way into X Games in 2007. Then it was a little bit easier from there. Got lucky and still feeling pretty lucky to keep going!
