About

I'm the co-founder and co-owner of Trailspace, along with my partner Dave, as well as its editor. I'm also on the Advisory Board for the Maine Outdoor Brands nonprofit trade group.

Dave and I founded Trailspace in 2001 because we wanted a place where fellow backcountry enthusiasts could share reviews of their own outdoor gear, apparel, and footwear.

Thanks to our amazing community members, Trailspace now has more than 35,000 reviews and counting. Our members' first-hand reviews have helped millions of people find and select gear for their own outdoor adventures.

When I'm not inside working on Trailspace, I like to go outside to run, ski, hike, and bike on trails and in the woods and mountains of Maine, northern New England, and beyond. I like trees, summits, rocks, and snow.

I've hiked all of the 4,000 Footers in New England. I occasionally whittle away at the New England 100 Highest list, and I've also hit a few high points, including Rainier, along the way. I've been a runner for three decades and have run trail races from 3K to 100 miles, and many in between.

I would rather be outside and moving forward than sitting at and typing on this computer.
