Course Leader, Staff

I am currently the Technical Director for AIARE.
Though I taught my first avalanche class early on as a professional, I've been an active instructor since the early 1990s. I've been an instructor for the CAA Industry Training Program since 2009.
For the past 17 years I’ve been a consulting scientist and avalanche professional based in Golden BC. My scope of professional practice includes mapping, planning, technology development and integration of avalanche forecasting methods for the transportation, ski area, and commercial backcountry sectors. A recent project centered around the advancement of the Blade Hardness Gauge for snow profile work.
