International Man of Mystery...

My photo
I grew up in the Boston area and lived there until my junior year in high school when I attended the Mountain School, a semester program run by Milton Academy in Vershire, VT. I then attended Colby College in Waterville, ME. During my time at Colby I studied anthropology, spent a semester in Northeast India, and became fluent in Nepali. Before I became a guide I earned my black belt in kenpo karate and taught karate for 6 years. I began guiding in college on the rocky coast of ME with Acadia Mountain Guides and on ice at the International Mountain Climbing School in NH. After graduating I took to the highway and drove from ME to WA for the big mountains and glaciers. I spend my winters in lovely Ouray, CO guiding in the famous ice park. I am currently working towards becoming a certified guide through the American Mountain Guides Association. I live, work and play in the hills and on the rocks. On the rocks both literally and, well, with ice.

It is really exciting to look forward to an expedition to the highest point in North America, Denali a.k.a Mount Mckinley. My co-guide and I have been spending our days in Talkeetna, AK putting copious amounts of food in ziplocks and marking everything so we can find what we want easily at high altitude. If all goes well we will be leading 6 climbers to the top of North America. Wish us luck and check back in July for photos and stories!
