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.

The Disappointment Cleaver

Climbers yesterday were not disappointed standing on Mount Rainier's summit at 14,411' we enjoyed stunning 360 degree views of the surrounding ranges. The stuart range to the east, the Olympics to the west, and the Cascade volcanos Mounts Baker, Adams and St. Helens and Glacier peak.

It was in many ways a perfect summit day. Congratulations everyone on a terrific summit day!
