Why Dartmouth?
Dartmouth has strong academics and one of the best ski teams in the country so it seemed like an ideal choice.

How long have you been skiing and what got you interested in skiing?
I think I put on my first pair of skis right after I learned how to walk and a lot of my family skis so I grew up doing it.

Have you won any academic or skiing awards recently?

EISA rookie of the year, EISA 1st Team All-East, NCAA All-American, 2009 World Junior Team

Tell me something interesting about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates.
I was bald until I was two and I'm scared of the water.

What are your future plans, if any?

I'd like to ski until I'm ready to move on and I'm leaning towards a sociology or geography major so I'd like to do something with that.
