I began teaching skiing in 1990 at Blue Knob, and since then have taught at Seven Springs, Nemacolin Woodlands, Killington, and most recently at Hidden Valley. I've served as Alpine Training Director for Seven Springs and Hidden Valley Snowsports Schools. I am certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (Level 3 Alpine, Level 1 Cross Country) and a member of the PSIA-E Alpine Education Staff (Development Team), and a L100 USSA Alpine Coach. In the summer I guide multi-day bicycle tours for Wilderness Voyageurs in Ohiopyle, and in my free time I teach biology and environmental science at Greensburg Salem High School. I'm a graduate of Saint Vincent College (B.S. in biology, M.S. in education), and live in sunny Connellsville, PA.
