Vancouver, Canada was the catalyst that led me to living a life full of outdoor adventure. Let me explain. I was always “active”. I played Division I volleyball at Santa Clara University and grew up skiing in Lake Tahoe. It was when I met Tyler, during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver that I really kicked my adventure spirit into high gear. Shortly after the closing ceremonies, I returned to British Columbia to visit Tyler and explore more. Tyler and I skied Whistler, hiked the famous Chief in Squamish, and ran around Stanley Park in Vancouver. I was hooked on fresh air and the freedom associated with it. For the two years that Tyler and I dated, I was in BC about 1-2 times a month and the adventures never stopped (Tyler is Canadian and lived in BC). When he was in Southern California visiting me, we skied Mammoth, splashed around in the Pacific Ocean, played beach volleyball, and ran a few half marathons together. When Tyler and I got married in 2012, we choose a winter wedding in Park City. Why? So we could ski, of course! After we wed, Tyler moved to San Diego and we started our lives as a married couple. In San Diego, we get in the ocean every chance we get but our true love is the mountains. Last summer, we went on three epic multi-day backpacking trips in the Eastern Sierra. In the winter, we use all our time off to travel to snowy destinations such as St. Anton Austria (2012 honeymoon and 2014 vacation), Jackson Hole, Utah, Colorado, Whistler, Tahoe & Mammoth. I sometimes like to do multiple sports in the same day and have completed two 70.3 Half Ironman distance triathlons and am training for Whistler Ironman 2017!

I grew up in Montreal, Canada and moved to British Colombia when I was in my early 20s to continue his work for Oakley as the West Cost Technical Marketing Representative. When I wasn’t traveling and working (and sometimes when I was working – you could do a lot of work on a blackberry from the chairlift without even taking your gloves off!), I was on the slopes of Whistler Blackcomb either skiing in the winter or mountain biking in the summer.
I moved to California in 2012 after Megan and I were married and began running marketing for the organic skincare company, COOLA. Getting outdoors as much as I can, I still manage to go skiing, mountain biking, and backpacking, but have added surfing, running, and road biking to my roaster of sports since relocating to the Golden State.

In skiing, it’s bad luck to announce your last run at the end of the day. When you know it’s the last run of the day, you just carry on as if it’s just another run and casually kick off your skis and head to apres. We have taken this philosophy and applied it to our lifestyle outside of skiing. We squeeze in every bit of adventure during our play time and when it’s time to go home, we always know that it’s never the last run. We will be back for more and more and more.
