Since my first hike as a child in the Adirondacks of upstate New York, I've loved the outdoors. I will always find an excuse to get outside and am constantly exploring. To date I've completed the following outdoor challenges: ADK 46ers, South Beyond 6000, GA4000, and the Colorado 14ers. I've also ice climbed up Mt. Hood, hiked up half a dozen mountains in the Alps and spent three consecutive summers constructing sustainable trail through the Colorado high-country. My favorite outdoor activities are backcountry skiing, mountaineering and scrambling across alpine ridges.
