I grew up in rural Mexico, I didn’t have any real winter experience until later in life. While in college in Guadalajara, I started rock climbing and mountaineering and in 2005 I visited the Alaska Range with 3 friends to climb Denali.
I move to Alaska in 2010. I live in Alaska year around and I’m involved with the outdoor community in many ways. I volunteer for a local Search and Rescue team and since 2015 I have been a part of the volunteer ranger patrol on Denali. In 2017, I starting guiding with Mountain Trip, sharing my experience in the Alaska Range and my passion for this beautiful place with co-workers and fellow climbers. I have been on Denali 5 times, with 4 summits and multiple routes. I love that I get to work multiple “jobs” in this spectacular place. Español es mi lengua materna.
