Raised in the northern village of Barrow, AK, I developed a diverse passion for the outdoors and a love for “Alaskan” life. With the help of my folks I spent an abundant amount of time on mountains and rivers throughout Alaska, and the opportunity to grow up in a remote village shaped my appreciation for personal challenge and the connection found in small, tight-knit communities.
For the last 10 years I have been developing as a professional guide and outdoor educator. Collectively, running expeditions on mountains and rivers throughout Southcentral Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Montana and Utah. I on-boarded with Mountain Trip in 2017 and have completed nine Denali West Buttress expeditions. I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to share the place I call home with guests from all over the world, and love hearing their stories, where I’m reminded to slow down, listen, and show gratitude.
I spend the winter helicopter-ski guiding, teaching avalanche education, and swinging hammers in Girdwood, AK. After the Denali season I’m typically found back on the river leading trips for a non-profit organization called First Descents. I have completed the Pro Level 2 Avalanche certification, am a HSUSA Level 2 Guide, and am currently pursuing AMGA Ski Guide certification.
