From picking juicy fruit on the family farm in Pennsylvania to choosing ripe ski lines in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, the outdoors have always played a major role in my life. My love for the mountains started though chasing powder and conveniently attending college in Northeastern Vermont. This is also when I started my professional guiding career, leading mountaineering trips up Mount Washington and taking people ice climbing at various crags in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. After graduating with a B.S. in Mountain Recreation Management the chase for high peaks ensued as I found my way traveling across the country to the San Juan Mountains in Colorado. With Telluride as my current home base I still take every offseason as a chance to get out and travel, honing my skills in as many new realms as possible.
My experience working for Mountain Trip started locally in Telluride and has now spread to Alaska on the West Buttress of Denali.Meet Our Guides
