Instructor Bios

Evan: Lead Instructor

I grew up in a small town called Palmyra, Wisconsin. My early years were spent skiing on Blue Spring Lake, where I first joined the Blue Spring Lake Ski Club. I later became part of the Minnieska Ski Team, skiing on Whitewater Lake. I graduated from UW-La Crosse, and while there, also competed with the 3-event ski team.

I’ve had the privilege of skiing professionally at the Tommy Bartlett Show in the Wisconsin Dells, SeaWorld San Antonio, and Legoland in Florida. In addition to waterskiing, my hobbies include hiking, golfing, snow skiing, hunting, and being an avid sports enthusiast.

Andrew: Driver

A show skier for the past 9 years, Andrew’s favorite acts are jump, barefoot, and shoe ski. With a friendly and encouraging attitude, you are certain to feel welcome on the water with Andrew and the rest of the Stepping Stones team.
