About

Growing up in rural Connecticut allowed me the opportunity to spend time outdoors all throughout childhood. I was able to hike, camp, mountain bike, and ski (downhill and cross country) all within my town. The passion for the outdoors that I developed growing up helped influence where I settled at different stages of life. I selected my college based on access to hiking and skiing and when I chose to move to Washington, D.C. I made sure I knew the best areas for mountain biking within a short drive. My final move, to the White Mountains of New Hampshire, was purely based on access to the woods. 

During our time in Northern New Hampshire my wife and I (and our dog) spend all of our free time hiking and backpacking in the spring, summer, and fall, and skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.

Since moving to the White Mountains I have started Alpine Touring which has provided for skiing experiences I never before imagined.

I spent much of 2012 and 2013 working with Badass Outdoors Gear Shop in Littleton, New Hampshire which gave the opportunity to share my passion for the outdoors with customers. While I am no longer working the retail side of the business I have stayed on to help as their adventure coordinator as we start guiding trips in the whites.

In order to give back to the community I am a member of the Pemigewasset Valley Search and Rescue team based in Franconia, NH. We assist with lost and injured hikers throughout the White Mountains.
