Adventure, Canyoneering, Orienteering, Rappelling
I am the owner, lead instructor and guide of an adventure company/school. I have been referred to as one of the most prolific and best-trained canyoneering instructors in America. Because this sport has unique risks and has become highly specialized, it requires a very specific set of technical skills to enjoy it safely. Our canyoneering courses/trips include elements from other sports like rock-climbing, caving, mountaineering and swiftwater rescue … always with an emphasis on safety.
I have a great deal of experience in adventure training, both professionally and personally. My certifications include Association for Canyoneering Education Master Instructor/Certified Guide, American Canyon Guides Association Certified Guide/Officer/Instructor, Certified Tactical Rappel Master and Master Rappeller, Wilderness First Responder, CPR, Advanced Swiftwater Rescue Technician, Technical Rope Rescue Technician, and Leave No Trace Master Educator. I have trained as a Whitewater Rafting Guide, taught Basic Mountaineering, and continue to teach Map and Compass Navigation and wilderness ethics.
