Experience: Grew up in the Green Mountain State of Vermont, USA. A four season mountain & water sport addict, I enjoy fishing, mountain & road biking, hiking, snowboarding, skiing, canyoning, climbing, kayaking, sailing, snorkeling & SCUBA diving.
With a background in engineering, I’ve been fortunate to work for the US spaceflight industry, naval ships and solar energy sectors.
Expertise: I specialize in fitting and hiking with Aarn Packs, boot fitting, lightweight through- hiking and sleep systems.
Favourite trek: The Overland Track in April/May- Tasmania
What do you love about the outdoors?: I like to be removed from civilization, and exist solely as a human exploring a planet. Mountains remind you of the giant time scales it takes to build them relative to human life. I like to get far away from light pollution to watch the stars, and if I’m lucky, the International Space Station flyover.
Favourite piece of gear: My Aarn Featherlight Freedom 69L has revolutionized my comfort in hiking. I’ve hiked over 500km in it now.
