Brett Botelho splits his time living between California and Colorado. In the summer, he lives in Southern California and trains, goes to the beach and spends time with his Husky Avalanche, whom you may recognize. In the winter, he lives in Frisco, CO where he trains for the US Paralympic Snowboard team and enjoys the mountains. He became an amputee on 12/1/14 and hasn't looked back since. He is also the author of his self-written book: Standing My Own Ground - Getting Back Up When It Seems Impossible, which was released to the public in October 2017.
