My Story

I grew up skiing in the Midwest in Cincinnati, OH. I have been skiing in since the age of 5 and competing since 7. Not being from the South, I had to take advantage of every opportunity presented to me to extend my season. After skiing in dry-suits and breaking the ice during my high school years in the winter months, I was very lucky to be able to attend the University of Louisiana-Lafayette to be able to ski comfortably year round. Since then, I have become a 2-time world slalom champion, winning both the U21 title in Madrid, Spain and also the University title in Akita, Japan. This sport has brought me great experiences and I have met so many great people. Now residing in Tallahassee, FL at Lake 38, I am ready to continue the journey to be the best skier that I can be while continuing to experience great new places and meet new people that share the same love for the sport of waterskiing.

Highlights:

2016 USA Waterski and NCWSA Male Athlete of the year
2016 University World Slalom Champion
2-Time National Collegiate Slalom Champion, 13′ 15′
2015 Under 21 World Slalom Champion
