Ever since I was a little kid, I have always been on the go and had a passion for building things and the outdoors. I have always had abnormal amounts of energy, in fact, my parents had to keep me on a child leash when they took me out in public so I wouldn't get myself lost. I would spend my days waking up at the crack of dawn just so I could go outside and play before school and then coming home and going straight outside again until the sunset. Now I am 24 years of age and have just as much energy as I did when I was a child.
Luckily, I have learned how to channel it into the things I love. I still spend just as much time outdoors as I did while growing up. I fill my time doing the things I love most in life, whether it be riding the Mt. Bachelor Park with my friends, shredding in the Oregon backcountry, downhill mountain biking on the trails in Whistler BC, or backpacking and overloading basically anywhere else. While enjoying the outdoors, I also kept up with my academics. I graduated from Oregon State University Cascades with a degree in Energy Systems Engineering in June 2018. I am now working full time as a Project Engineer for Apollo Mechanical Contractors.
Snowboarding and Academics
Snowboarding has been a huge part of my life. I competed since I was in 5th grade until 2017 when I decided to make a transition in my life and pursue my dreams of Engineering. I had the opportunity to travel around the world and compete in various high level freestyle competitions. While traveling from place to place, I somehow managed to keep moving toward obtaining my degree in Engineering. I found a way to manage my time in a very efficient way that let me succeed in both snowboarding and my education. This led me to my current job with Apollo Mechanical Contractors.
