Born and raised in the Adirondack Mountains, I learned to love all seasons. In particular winter. I searched out the seasons west via college in Missoula, Montana where I earned a bachelors degree in Fine Arts and got to know the slopes at Snowbowl Mt. I soon learned the challenges of having a career in oil painting while living in Seattle. Like many of us, just wanting to be a ski bum for 1 year, turned into 17 winters at Canyons Resort where I have taught full time as a ski instructor.
