GET TO KNOW
What do you love to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I spend basically all my time outside. I love exploring the Sierra Nevada, hiking, climbing, and camping in the summer, and skiing/snowboarding in the winter. My passion for climate tech stems from a desire to ultimately protect the places I recreate in given the impacts of climate change (i.e. wildfires and drought in California) on the ability to enjoy the outdoors.
What’s your next adventure with Yamaha? Which Yamaha products would you love to try next and where?
I would love to see an electric snowmobile in the product lineup someday. That would be amazing for getting out into the back country for easier access to skiing fresh snow.
