I hail from a clan of Sunday River Tele skiers. Years ago, at the ripe age of 16, I was inducted into the clan as a second generation member and set up with Scarpa T2 boots, Rossi T3's and 7tm bindings. As I grew older and more skilled I was able to participate in beer:30, a clan tradition formerly taking place in lot 7 (super secret tele clan hideaway), more recently moved to Barker lodge. After graduating from Champlain College and moving back to Maine, I couldn't feed the need as well as I'd wished. I left Maine in search of more mountains, a closer commute to my powder addiction and better beer. I traded in my T3's for rip chicks and picked up some ener-g's to handle the VT powder.
I found a new clan upon moving back to Burlington that supported all of my habits and began working at OGE in January 2011. They also encouraged new habits to the mix such as climbing, slack-lining, backcountry skiing, and more. I spend my summer hiking, biking ridiculous distances on my single speed bike like it has gears, and swimming.
I am now working as the Social Media Optimizer bringing OGE into the world of Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and more.
