I am excited to announce that filming for LymeLight has been extended to include my comeback to Professional Freeskiing.
After recovering from Lyme Disease in March 2012, I spent the spring and summer months building strength and endurance back up. With the support of my sponsors, in September 2012 I traveled to New Zealand to compete in my first Halfpipe contest in 3 years. At the New Zealand Open I placed 2nd, solidifying my return to the sport that I've missed so terribly.

To kick off the North American winter competition season I placed 3rd at the North Face Open Halfpipe event at Copper Mountain, CO. And then competed in the Dew Tour Breckenridge Halfpipe event the very next week. Neu Production's John Roderick was there to capture the excitement.

We will be filming throughout the 2013 competition season, as I go for my dream of making the US Olympic Halfpipe Team for Sochi, Russia 2014.
We plan to release LymeLight during Lyme awareness month, May 2013. Stay tuned for updates as the winter comes to a close.
