I became part of the Mountain Trip family in 2016 (by somewhat serendipitous circumstances) and I couldn’t be more thankful. I’m incredibly humbled to be part of a team that has provided such unmatched alpine experiences to clients from all around the world.
Born and raised in Montana, I’ve been fascinated by the mountains for as long as I can remember; my best memories growing up involve chasing my parents up hiking trails and down ski slopes as soon as I could walk. Since then, my passion has only deepened, and has drawn me into the depths of mountains around the world, from Japan to New Zealand, the French Alps to Morocco. Though I enjoy most alpine pursuits, the pinnacle of happiness for me involves skiing down a steep, pristine backcountry couloir after hiking up several thousand feet of vertical. I guide hiking and backpacking for Mountain Trip on the beautiful trails surrounding Telluride, but most of the time you can find me at our office downtown working on trip logistics, marketing and client outreach.
Plans for the upcoming year include a Rainier summit ski, some time ski mountaineering in Montana and Alaska and a month of climbing and trekking in the Himalaya. With any luck (and a bit of hard work) I’ll have a Denali summit under my belt soon–I can’t get away without one on this team for very long.
