I started snowboarding in 1987 and after the first turn, I knew I wanted to somehow be involved in the snow sports industry.  I moved to Minneapolis and started working part time at Hoigaard’s selling winter sports equipment.  That opportunity turned into a full-time sales position in the ski/snowboard department where I also worked custom fitting ski boots.  Finally, I became the snowboard buyer for Hoigaard’s.

In 1994, I began working for Rossignol as an independent snowboard representative covering the Midwest and the Great Lakes Territories.  In 2005, I formed an agency representing the Rossignol’s Alpine, Nordic, Snowboard, and Apparel collections, Montana Sport NA and most recently Giro Snow in the Western Great Lakes region.

Working in the winter sport industry has given me the opportunity to meet and work with many great people – retailers, suppliers, and the great reps in my agency. I am truly grateful for your friendship, counsel, and business. I would like to thank the retailers and suppliers for all their support. I’m very grateful and honored to receive this award!
