It's all about the Mountains! Whether its climbing, skiing, hiking, rafting, kayaking or camping, I love it all. The more remote, the better.
My parents instilled my love of the outdoors, Scouting developed the basic skills, National Outdoor Leadership School and guiding refined those skills, and participating with friends and family in remote expeditions to Alaska, Russia, Nepal, Tibet, France, Switzerland, Scotland, Ecuador, Canada, and throughout the continental US took them to a higher level.
