Liftopia made me a part of the team in July 2011 as Director of Finance and Operations where I coordinate all things money related as well as HR, Legal and IT. Lots of hats to wear. I grew up just outside of Boston where my father taught me to cross-country ski in the woods around Concord and Lexington, MA (he’s a huge history buff). At about age 7, I learned downhill at Nashoba Valley through an after-school program. I followed my older brother around all the New England mountains straight through high school, but we concentrated in Maine, specifically Sugarloaf. After moving West, I spent a season as a valet attendant at the Resort at Squaw Creek near Lake Tahoe, and haven’t been able to shake my love for Tahoe skiing since. I now spread my on-mountain time around the lake, but feel most attached to Squaw Valley USA and Alpine Meadows.
