Entrepreneurial Endeavors Current Employment: Commercial Land Developer DDRM Greatplace LLC 340 Main St Ste 203, Park City, UT –My responsibilities as an intern are to aid, wherever needed, with the many land and commercial development projects in the Park City area, including the development of the St. Regis Hotel in Deer Valley, Utah. –The Company has asked that I continue work during the winter season. DDRM has been extremely flexible with my schedule as I travel constantly for Alpine Ski Racing. Previously a young Alpine Athlete, I formed a company whose mission was to provide a unique blend of customer service and specialty ski tuning. During the winter, Park City and the surrounding resorts enjoy over 4 million skier visits each year. Coupled with over 1,000 ski instructors living and working in Park City and approximately 40,000 local Park City residents, I felt that there is sufficient market that would enjoy a ski tuning service that picks up and delivers freshly tuned skis to ones home. Additionally, the tuning would be completed by hand using only precision tools typically afforded to alpine racers. I seized this opportunity catering to the skier community enabling me to earn enough money to not only help with my ski racing but to purchase specialty equipment such as mountain bikes and other ski specific product.
Added Experience As a dual citizen of Austria and the United States, I had the fortune to live and attend school in the United States, Austria and England. Having lived in Austria for three years and the United Kingdom for three years, I grew to understand multiple cultures. I feel this experience has helped me pursue ski racing. Alpine ski racing requires a huge commitment to the sport as well as an ability to manage international travel, training, and competition while living out of a suitcase and learning how to find nutrition when virtually everything is a new experiment. Having done this since I was a small child, I feel my experience enabled me to mature as a well-rounded individual able to pursue trying and difficult situations with intensity and sensibility.
