I am a full time athlete competing in Alpine Skiing and Road and Track Cycling. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Denver. I started skiing when I was five years old and cycling competitively when I was fifteen. I am currently training for 2012 London Summer Paralympics living in Colorado Springs at the Olympic Training Center and skiing up in Winter Park, CO. This will be my sixth Paralympic games after competing in 2002 Salt Lake City (2 silvers), 2004 Athens (4th and 6th), 2006 Tornio (1 gold), 2008 Beijing (1 Silver), and 2010 Vancouver (5th). In Beijing I was the only athlete from the US to compete in the both winter and summer Paralympics. My future goals would be to medal in two disciplines in the 2012 London Games.
