Jonny Moseley  

Olympic Athlete, Freestyle Skier, TV Host

Jonny won the gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics in the freestyle mogul event. He revolutionized skiing by bringing a non-traditional, "extreme" style to the event and became world famous for his "360 mute grab". He came home a national hero.

Jonny Moseley calls Tiburon, California home. This elite suburb is just north of San Francisco, where salaries (and house prices) are not uncommon to be a seven-figure number. Tiburon is about a 15-20 minute drive from The City. (Not counting that lovely rush hour traffic in Marin County)

Jonny Moseley, however, was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He started skiing when he was 9, after he had returned to the US Mainland. His family went up the the Sierra Nevada every weekend. He skiied his first competition around that age, signing up on a dare from his older brother. All that he could remember is that he couldn't wait for the yummy cookies, because the competition was sponsored by a local cookie company.

Jonny Moseley loves water-skiing, wakeboarding and working on his '64 Pontiac Bonneville. He says, "I'm not very good but I grew up fixing things." He used to play golf, but he gave it up. Jonny explains, "I grew up playing golf but I've quit until I’m done because just walking around playing eats up six hours." Jonny just loves cheesecake. "I like it plain, nice and moist. Well, maybe a little chocolate sauce -- but efinitely more white [or yellow] than brown." (Well is reponse to that, I like it chocolatey (Triple Chocolate with Raspberry garnish, YUM!)
