I feel as if I am constantly searching for new ways of sharing my love for the mountains with others. I’ve spent the past 15 years guiding and exploring around the world in search of adventure through climbing, trekking and trail running. These explorations have taken me to the high mountains of the Himalayas, Andes, Alaska and even to Antarctica several times.

Although spending time on the sides of icy peaks has consumed much of his life, these remote travels have also presented many opportunities for me to pursue my other passion of mountain trail running. As a Colorado native, I feel at home on the high trails above Telluride where I’ve lived for the past 13 years. I’ve focused my passion for running into a new endeavor, Highline Running Adventures, of which I am the owner and Director. After running a handful of local ultra marathons such as the San Juan Solstice 50 and the Telluride Mountain Run, I decided to develop my own long distance endurance outings in the mountains that I can share with others.
