Last week I submitted my application to try out for a second term on the PSIA-AASI National Team. This video is just one part of the application process, the next step is the on-snow selections in April.
Serving on the 2016-20 National Team has been an incredible honor. We worked hard to create the future of PSIA and AASI, and I’m trying out for a second term because I want to continue serving the membership and the organization, and to continue the work that this team started.
I started filming and editing this year’s application video months ago, but in the end, threw it away and started from scratch right before applications were due. Much of the video work we do goes through multiple rounds of edits and cuts, and for this year’s application video, I was feeling like trying something different.
So here it is: 5 minutes of unscripted, live video, shot sometime around 2am, sandwiched between travel home from clinics in Minnesota for PSIA-AASI Central Division, and a Level 1 Exam in Rocky Mountain Division.
Let me know what you think about the video in the comments!

For the last several months my good friend (and AASI Teammate), Nick Alfieri, and I, have been working on a new project. It’s a podcast about life, the universe, and everything, but centered around our lives and careers in the snowsports industry.
With this show, Nick and I will both tell our stories about snowboarding, competition, careers, passion, and struggles. Many of these stories and themes will be areas of the snowsports instruction career that we’ve wanted to tell, but haven’t previously had the right venue.
This is a weekly show. There are 6 episodes out now, with new episodes released every week on Wednesdays at 6pm mountain time. You can find us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and most other sites that list podcasts.
You can also find everything about our show on our host, Anchor.fm: https://anchor.fm/all-i-really-need-to-know-i-learned-from-snowboarding
