IFMGA Mountain Guide

Boulder, Colorado, USA and Chamonix, France

I am the owner of Lotus Alpine Adventures and have a long career in the guiding industry. I started out working in Outdoor Education in Colorado, where I also received a degree in Outdoor Education from Ithaca College.

From 2007 to 2014, I owned and operated Crested Butte Mountain Guides. Throughout those years, I also worked through the AMGA training curriculum and eventually became the 95th American to obtain IFMGA certification, the most rigorous international certification available in the industry.

Throughout my career, I have worked for and built partnerships with many of the main mountain guiding agencies in the US and it is thanks to these partnerships that Lotus Alpine Adventures can now offer programs in very varied spots across the US, including: Crested Butte, Boulder and Eldorado Canyon in Colorado; Moab and Castle Valley in Utah; Red Rocks in Nevada; Valdez in Alaska; Jackson Hole in Wyoming; and the Cascades of Washington.

All of my experience and expertise ultimately results in a truly professional guiding service and a great trip experience for you and your group, regardless of your level or activity.

The world´s mountain ranges are not only our playground but also our office and our classroom. Let us guide you and share with you some truly unforgettable moments!
