My love of nature and passion for adventure has led me to a career in outdoor education. I left the big city life of New York over a decade ago to embark on a journey of self discovery that has led me to many successful summits. As a wilderness guide, I have drawn from my experiences as a business owner, athlete, coach, volunteer, mentor, and explorer. My greatest professional accomplishments have been borne from my ability to inspire others to make their own discoveries in nature that lead to personal growth and achievement.
The following are the details of my service:
Yosemite is one of the crown jewels of America’s National Park system, it is an honor to share many of its 800 miles of trails with visitors from across the globe. YExplore Yosemite Adventures offers a full array of custom guided experiences including Adventure Hikes, Half Dome Hikes, Multi Day Backpack Trips, Nature Walks, Snowshoe Hikes, and Photography Workshops 12 months a year. Small group sizes guarantee a more personalized experience with our professional guides who are all local to Yosemite. We are a socially responsible company providing educational services that follow Leave No Trace principles to minimize our impact in nature to ensure that the ecology of the park will not be compromised. Custom Adventures, Workshops and Family Activities are available to Individuals and Groups of all ages and experience levels in every season.
I have spent the last decade cultivating my professional career as a motivator, coach, naturalist, and wilderness guide while sharing stories of the geological, natural, and human histories of Yosemite National Park. As a Certified Wilderness First Responder, I have received extensive training to provide added safety on every trip. I am also a Leave No Trace Trainer and relish my role as a steward in Yosemite who enjoys teaching principles of minimum impact recreation while accessing the world’s most pristine places.
