** Editors note: This is a weekly column highlighting our ski coaches from around the country… including elite coaches, college coaches, high school coaches, volunteer coaches, and learn-to-ski coaches. This is an effort to sample a diverse group of coaches and recognize the people who are the backbone of today’s skiers. If you would like to nominate a coach for an interview, please email Please give coach’s name, email, phone, and a small paragraph describing the nominee. The more diverse, the better.

1. Age, coaching position?

I’m 27. Head Coach — Boulder Nordic Junior Racing Team(BNJRT).

2. Skiing background?

I grew up in upstate New York. There was a local alpine/nordic area that is owned by the town. All students in grades K-12 get a free ski pass… I think that’s how it works these days. Right across from our school was a little 3-knolled t-bar hill with nordic trails on top. It was a great setup: get done with school, go skiing, and have a good time. I then went on to ski at St. Lawrence University, spending summers in Bend, Oregon, and then one winter coaching at Bowdoin College. I have been in Boulder ever since.
