What’s the best part of your job?

Having fun in the mountains, and realizing that I’m at work!

Tell us about your favorite rapid, hike or camp and what makes it special

Living in the mountains constantly provides you with great experiences and I’d have to say the best part of it all is when you look around and think “I can’t believe this is my life!”

What can you not live without on a trip?

Lying on my back at the end of a long day, and taking in how amazing the night sky is.
