Raised carving the slopes of Nebraski, this snowboard-loving, world-saving, Chicago transplant seeks to make a difference by introducing at-risk youth to the snowboard parks of New Hampshire. Yet one bad jump in his dad’s old wool coat twists that relationship all out of shape. This story of guardianship in action comes from our October 2013 show, “Parents or Guardians.”
