Hello and welcome to the Global Alpine Site. On these pages, you will find the numerous personal and guided adventures that I find myself on. I do my best to update content often so keep checking in!
I am an internationally certified ACMG / IFMGA Mountain Guide and have worked in the profession since 1999. Over the years, I have guided and led numerous expeditions in: Alaska, Canada, Ecuador, Argentina, Boliva, Peru, Nepal, Kazakhstan, Russia, France, Italy and Switzerland. Some of my favorite guided ascents include: Ham and Eggs on the Moose's Tooth (Alaska), Peak 11,300 (Alaska), Cabeza de Condoriri (Bolivia), Ama Dablam (Nepal), Alpamayo (Peru), and Antisana (Ecuador).
Since 2005, I have also worked as a freelance writer and photographer with clients that include: Powder, Patagonia, Gripped, Off-Piste, The Ski Journal, MEC, The Canadian Alpine Journal, Backcountry, Black Diamond, High Line and Kootenay Mountain Culture.
I offer small, flexible and customized climbing and skiing adventures across the globe. I believe in low-ratio guiding with the highest attention to detail. During the summer months, I split my time between Europe and North America. In Winter, I heli-ski with CMH and ice climb in the Rockies. Spring and Fall are reserved for ski mountaineering in the Canadian Rockies and for expeditions to Alaska, South America and Asia.
I hope you enjoy perusing this blog and please contact me with any guiding inquiries.
