At the University of Montana, I ran the college radio station as the Business Manager where I was in charge of fundraising, assisting with concerts and radio ad sales. During that... same time period, I volunteered as a Big Brother/ Big Sister Mentor. I graduated with a marketing degree and quickly dove headfirst into my dream gig of working with Burton Snowboards. For a time I was a strategic nomad, where I ran The ChillFoundation (Burton Snowboards) for three years in Portland and SLC in the winters, then in the springtime, I would travel parts of the world with my savings. I worked at Windells Camp and as a Brand Ambassador for Burton Snowboards on Mt. Hood and then ended my wanderings in the fall by planning and hosting Shred Fest. When I was about 13 years old, I started visualizing my path. I first dreamed of a large festival with music and a rail jam, then being in Hollywood movies and not to mention, becoming a professional snowboarder! Show more
