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.

Climb Against Cancer

This climb was a different kind of climb. It is always a privilege to help people realize their personal goals and stand on top of tall mountains. On this climb it was an honor to help two climbers who were raising money for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center through the center's Climb to Fight Cancer. Both climbers mixed their love of the mountains with a desire to do good in the world and in doing so raised a great deal of money for a good cause. Congratulations to both of you and thank you!
