I enjoy sharing ways of witnessing the changing mountain snowpack, both for the enjoyment of better understanding the world around us, and for maximum enjoyment while backcountry skiing! I teach courses in Washington State and have worked for a handful of guiding companies both in Bellingham and Leavenworth. Outside of AIARE work, I am a guide for many of the mountain disciplines available in the Cascades, I also instruct Wilderness Medicine courses, and provide support to ultra-runners in wilderness settings. I enjoy teaching because it challenges me to communicate complex ideas and ways of perceiving, in digestible chunks. I love learning about the people I serve, and offering them the experience that is most supportive to their learning and access to the mountains.
