Guide Bio

New Zealand’s Southern Alps is my backyard and I have years of experience in climbing, skiing, and guiding in every corner of this incredible mountain range.

Over the winter season I work as a heli-skiing guide and avalanche forecaster and guide backcountry ski touring and ski mountaineering trips. In the summer I guide ascents of New Zealand’s highest mountains.

I have climbed, skied and worked as a professional mountain guide, ski guide, and expedition guide in the Himalayas (Everest – Cho Oyu – Lobuche – Island Peak), Alaska, Canada, Japan’s Northern Alps, the United States, the European Alps and Carstensz Pyramid.

I am a passionate climbing and ski photographer and enjoy capturing the incredible landscapes and unique experiences in the mountain environment.

The challenge of matching different skill levels, locations, and mountain activities keeps me motivated to continue this lifestyle. My goal is to present you some of the best climbing, snow sport, and skiing experiences you’ve ever had and to create memories that last a lifetime.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
