About Me

I am a Colorado native and grew up in a family that loves the outdoors. I'm an avid hunter, fly fisherman, skier, and backpacker. I'm passionate about wild places, and I've traveled from Canada to the southern tip of Patagonia in search of adventure.

These adventures are made memorable by the people I've shared them with: my grandparents, parents, my wife, my friends, my kids, and those I continue to meet along the way.
