Favorite Hiball Energy Product and why?
Cold Brew! I love coffee more than just about anything, and this is a great one. Taste is amazing, it packs a punch, and I can choose unsweetened or slightly sweetened based on my mood.
Top 5 music playlist?
Who/What is your inspiration?
Lives well lived… meaning people who seem to balance adventure, family, constant learning and giving back. Tahoe's filled with people doing this in all different forms.
Highlight of your career thus far?
Can I have two?
1. Becoming the first person to ski the 8th tallest mountain in the world, Manaslu.
2. Being 12 years in with Alpenglow Expeditions, my guiding company. The team that guides trips and runs the company day-to-day is amazing. I am so proud to see my dream grow, and able to touch hundreds of clients at all different levels in climbing and skiing.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
What does it mean for you to be a Hiballer?
The team is so strong and varied. I just can’t wait to spend more time together as a team, and figure out ways to adventure together. And of course it is nice to promote a product that I truly love. Hiball nails the balance of energy drinks made with great ingredients.
