Experience Matters

I am so lucky to love what I do for work!  Malcolm Gladwell wrote that it takes 10,000 hours to become a Grand Master.  With a career in the ski and outdoor industry I have spent a minimum of 10,000 hours learning from the ground up– repairing, tailoring, sourcing, developing products and field testing, merchandising and manufacturing outerwear and accessories.

At the age of 20, I built and operated a successful repair and custom ski clothing facility called Wasatch Design at Snowbird Ski Resort in Utah.  I got to ski with rad athletes and work with hundreds of high-end vacationers, professional ski athletes and a former Utah Jazz NBA 7’4” center to design his custom performance ski and thermal clothing.

Before having a family I worked for international outerwear manufacturers like Tsunami, Wilson Golf, and Fera ski wear.  Now I am in my junior year at Oregon State University Cascades campus working on a bachelor of science degree in Social Science: Community Development and Leadership Option.

My family has been living in Bend since 2005 and I love what I do! I love extending the life of technical outdoor clothing and gear for real people just like you right here in Bend, Oregon!
