Professional/Educational Background 

I graduated from Flushing High School in Queens. Then attended college at Western Connecticut State University.  

I found snowboarding later in life, starting at the age of 30. After 3 years I became a snowboard instructor at Hunter Mountain, NY. Worked 4 years teaching and attained Level 1 certification, before pivoting into snowboard sales. 

Now, I manage a snowboard shop, run ski trips for a bus company, and volunteer teaching snowboarding to underprivileged children from Brooklyn. Completely immersed in the NYC snowboarding culture and community.

Snowboarding, it was literally a life changing experience for me. 

(I downhill longboard in the summer, to pretend I’m snowboarding)

ICE COAST for life…

I became a vinyl DJ in Junior High School, and dj’ed well after College. First practice doubles I purchased was “Ain’t No Half Stepping”, by Big Daddy Kane.
