Multi-day Tours Guide

Guiding since:

At AOA since:

2016

Hometown:

Glencoe, IL

What type of tours do you guide?

All sorts of multi-day hiking, backpacking, and adventure trips throughout Arizona and Utah.

Hobbies:

I was a theater and film critic before I became a guide, so you might catch me sneaking movies into the backcountry on my phone! I’m also an avid martial artist and history geek.

What do you love most about guiding?

The people. I love meeting guests from all over the world, and I learn as much from them as they learn from me. Every group has its own energy.

A memorable moment from your job:

Spending an entire hike in Bryce Canyon answering questions about medieval warfare. You never know where conversations in the outdoors will take you!
