After growing up skiing the White Mountains of New Hampshire, in 1987 Jeff traded two planks for one and spent the majority of his formative years honing his snowboard skills around New England. While acquiring his Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology at the University of Vermont, he ran the UVM Snowboard Club, competed professionally, promoted his sponsors, and coached at snowboard camps before “chasing the dream” to Jackson Hole in 1999.
Jeff began his tenure at JHSC in 2004 as a snowboard coach for the Freeride Program and in 2005 became head coach. In 2006 he became Freeride Program Director and continued to coach. While at JHSC, Jeff has co-founded the Wednesday Night Lights Rail Jam Series with Rob Kingwill (2007), started the Freeride Program’s summer skateboard camps (2009), and co-founded the Wild West Skateboard Contest Series (2013). In 2015 Jeff transitioned into the role of Advancement Director and then, in 2017, to his current role as Chief Marketing Officer where he overseas the Club’s fundraising events, marketing, communications, and sponsorships.
Since moving to Jackson, Jeff has remained heavily involved with the snowboard and action sports industries in many capacities including writing for print and web media, equipment research & design, terrain park design & build, and event design, execution, emceeing & consulting. Jeff’s other passions include heavy metal, skateboarding, camping, hiking, talking on microphones, and overland travel via bike, motorcycle, and/or van…All with his partner Amy and their punk-rock Chiweenie, Ramone by his side.
