CSGA II Certified Ski Guide and A3 Avalanche Professional
Spending time in the mountains is such a privilege. I’m fortunate enough to to do it for my career.
Growing up, I spent my weekends traveling around New England competing in ski racing and dreaming of skiing bigger mountains and deeper snow. Fortunately for me and unfortunately for my mother who dreamed of me being an architect, I moved to Utah at age 18 and have pursued a life in skiing ever since.
First it was ski racing, then it was Freeride competitions. A couple trips to Chamonix was all it took for me to become totally engrossed in ski mountaineering and the eventual goal of being a certified guide.
A decade later, I’m still looking to spend as much time as possible in the high mountains. Granted, these days sometimes I get a lift in a helicopter.
