I have spent the last twentyfive plus years climbing and guiding with thousands of people throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Ireland and Ecuador.
My profession has allowed me to spend over 600 days in the field as an outdoor educator. Some of the courses I have taught include rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, caving, mountain biking, kayaking and leadership development. I have had the pleasure to teach to a wide variety of audiences including at-risk youth and current and future business leaders. I am a Wilderness First Responder.
Before I became a guide, I spent two years as a member of two Mountain Rescue Units, participating in rescues on Mt Rainier and in the North Cascades of Washington state. When I am not climbing I can often be found outdoors participating in a variety of outdoor activities including cycling, back-country skiing or surfing.
My most rewarding work come from working with people with disabilities. I have been fortunate enough to be part of the Paradox Sports crew (www.paradoxsports.org), guiding ice in New Hampshire and rock in Kentucky and New York. Check out my website if you get a chance www.alpine-inspirations.com
