I grew up in the powder-starved wasteland of Southern California, where nobody owns a ski touring setup but seemingly everybody owns a convertible and tiny dog. Fortunately, my parents had an old A-frame ski cabin in the Sierra Nevada’s, and that is where the lifelong search for the perfect turn began. I was introduced to rock climbing and ski touring in college at UC Berkeley. Just like that any semblance of a straight-and-narrow career path was lost.

Under the guise of continuing my education, I completed a Master of Science at the University of Utah. I promptly moved to Colorado and dove into the American Mountain Guides Association certification process and continued my avalanche education through the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education.

It is a privilege to be a part of the Mountain Trip family. At this point the annual pilgrimage to Alaska feels as natural as an animal’s migration. In the summers I run laps up the Grand Teton for Jackson Hole Mountain Guides, and come winter I guide backcountry snowcat skiing and ski touring as well as instruct avalanche courses for Steamboat Powdercats.

I am an AMGA Aspirant Mountain Guide, perpetually mediocre mountain biker, and unabashed coffee fiend. For me, the best part of guiding and instructing others is enabling more people to safely experience the joys of the mountains. When I am not on the job, I can be found scheming over CalTopo, consuming potentially unhealthy amounts of peanut butter, and getting burned off my sport climbing project by nine-year old’s from Boulder.
