Las Vegas, NV

I grew up in the neon desert of Las Vegas and came to Michigan Tech for my undergraduate degree in environmental engineering. While at school I became involved with the Mushing Club at Michigan Tech and discovered the crazy world of sled dogs! Working out of Otter River Sled Dogs with Tom Bauer has helped me to learn so much, and I even adopted a retired sled dog of my own named Celeste. She can be found chilling poolside underneath the palm trees and sleeping 25/7.
