Been a while since we last talked! Quite a bit has transpired since we last talked....Since then I've done quite a bit. Here's a quick recap:
Graduated from UNH, also grew a terrible mustache...
Moved across the country to Montana!
Joined an INCREDIBLE team at Montana Ale Works, learned about sustainable food systems, beer, service, and of course how to have fun doing it all!
Skied a LOT of powder....including a few all time days at none other than Cannon Mountain
Spent countless hours admiring the last best place
Won not one, but two National Championships! Jeff and I have been going at it for the last 10 years, He's gotten me, I've gotten him. We've learned a lot from each other, and racing against Jeff never gets old.
Finished my Masters, Exercise and Nutrition Science. Pictured here, my colleague Phil Ferrara, climber extraordinaire, and Herr Professor Doctor Seifert, more to come on him....
Moved BACK across the country....
Relocated even further to the beautiful Salzburg, Austria where I am currently working on my Doctorate.
Dr. Seifert heard about a position opening here, and I successfully applied to continue my academic career here. As I sit here, I can look up at a poster of Marcel Hirscher above my desk that has been relabeled "Hansi Seifert." I may not be his student anymore but I can't seem to escape his presence.
If all goes according to plan, I'll be competing in the full World Cup circut this year from my home base here in Austria. I'm looking forward to getting a full season of training and racing under my belt, and I'm excited for what this season has in store. Although I haven't raced a full schedule since 2012, I'm confident that I've still got some speed left in the tank, just have to coax it out!
Hope you'll stick around to see what comes next!
