Jim Sanco

I grew up in Portland,OR and let Snowboarding dictate my life for the better part of 20 years. I have lived in Bend since 2007, where I attended OSU Cascades and have found myself professionally through the ski/snb retail industry, as a media producer (photographer, videographer, editor), a special project assistant at Visit Bend where I focused on user surveys and analytical data based research and since 2010 I have been the Brand Manager at BlackStrap Industries. I have 2 shred dogs that test gear for Ruffwear, an amazing wife who is a horticulturist & bee keeper and a 2.5 year old daughter named Hazel who (Coincidentally) wants to snowboard, ski and ride bikes when she grows up.
