Amy Purdy

Amy Purdy has defied the odds throughout her life to accomplish some extraordinary things.

She grew up with a passion for snowboarding and travel, and despite fighting for her life and losing both of her legs below the knees to bacterial meningitis at the age of 19, her passion for life carried her not only to the upper echelons of athletics but to the dance floor of Hollywood and beyond.

Amy is a professional snowboarder and a three-time Paralympic medalist, making her the most decorated Paralympic snowboarder in US history.

Mark Schulman

Mark Schulman has enjoyed an unprecedented career for over 30 years as a first-call drummer for world-class rock and pop artists.

He was voted ‘Top 3 Pop-Rock Drummers’ in the Modern Drummer Reader’s Poll in 2014 and was the featured cover artist in the May 2019 issue of Modern Drummer. Mark has done four record-breaking world tours with P!NK and continues to work with her after 14 years.
