I began riding at the age of seven, and spent much of my childhood knocking around on horseback or at the barn. An avid Pony Clubber, I also competed in 3-day eventing, was a member of a state champion drill team, and played polo. After graduating from college, I couldn’t figure out a way to incorporate horses into my life in New York City, so took a long hiatus from riding. When I moved to California in 2013, I began taking lessons again and have gradually become more and more involved with the horse world. When I’m not doing horsey things, I love spending time outdoors and exploring off-the-beaten-path parts of the world. I also work full-time in software product management, building digital products with kickass teams of designers and engineers.
