2011 US Rep of the Year
Rockies (WY/ UT/ CO/ NM/ TX)
Brands: Dynastar / Lange / Look / Kerma
Sun Valley Ski Tools / Sportube
I started skiing in 1966 with Eskimo Ski club in Denver. I spent a couple of years in Crested Butte working in rental/retail shops by day and pearl diving at night. I went to Durango for college, skiing at Purgatory. I then moved to Eagle as sales associate for Dynastar Lange, then onto Utah as Sales Rep for Dynastar Lange. There I was accused of being a “Bird brain” (lots of time at Snowbird). Then I went back to Eagle and skiing Vail.
I started repping when I was hired by Dynastar as a Colorado sales associate in 1993. I went to the intermountain territory (Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming) in 1995 as sales rep for Dynastar / Lange.
I proceeded to become the rep in Colorado for Dynastar/ Lange in 2001. I still represent Dynastar and Lange, as well as Look, Kerma, Sun Valley Ski Tools, and Sportube.
I enjoy selling products that I use and believe in people picking up on the enthusiasm and passion.
I enjoy working with like-minded people who enjoy the lifestyle of the winter sports industry.
It’s given me the opportunity to travel to some very cool places and meet some very good people along the way. I’ve learned a lot about this industry and feel very lucky to be involved with it.
I would like to thank all the folks that thought I was worthy of this award. Thanks for laughing at all my bad jokes. My family has been a big part of this; with the moves and the 24/7 part of the job. I could not have done this without their support.
See you on the hill!
