Over the last decade, Abby has crafted a career in the outdoor industry as a photographer and writer specializing in backcountry photoshoots and culture. Whether for work or pleasure this girl is always on the move, always in the mountains, and always searching for powder. When she's not chasing golden hour deep in a range with a 60lb camera pack she's speaking at snow safety clinics and has even created her own series of social events known as "Split Social." The events are designed to educate splitboarders specifically while building a strong splitboard community and also to instill good communication between all backcountry users. Her clinics cater to all abilities from never-evers, to those looking to get into splitboard mountaineering. Abby also volunteers with Mountain Mentors, SheJumps and works with Wheelie Creative to help increase female participation in the outdoors. Abby is supported both in front and behind the camera by Arc’teryx, Karakoram, Smith Optics, and G3.
