Guiding since:


At REI since:



Amarillo, TX

What type of tours do you guide?

Single-day Tours


My wifer and I run marathons, sprint triathlons, and other runs (halves, 10ks, 5ks, trail runs). I play tennis, golf, and some pickleball. I love watching college football and basketball.

What do you love most about guiding?

Being outdoors and sharing the adventure opportunity with others. I also enjoy the workout I get and all the desert offers while working with great people.

A memorable moment from your job:

So far, learning from the other guides has been most memorable. I’ve learned a lot and have heard some great stories.
