I trained as a raft guide in 1996. Since then, I have worked mostly in Colorado and West Virginia, but I have spent time working in Costa Rica, Peru and New Zealand. I have also spent many years as a competitive raft racer, holding a seat on the Men’s U.S. National Team for one season. I spend the rest of my time either traveling or ski patrolling in Colorado at Arapahoe Basin. On the side, I devote whatever time is left to working as a freelance graphic artist. I started guiding in the Canyon with CanX in 2007 but it didn’t take me long to fall under the spell of the Canyon.
