I started with the Alta Group in 1996, joining Dave Haavik and Roody Rasmussen.  I came to the group with a history of climbing, skiing and general outdoor debauchery.  I have always had a passion for all things outside and wild, and that has never left me.  But age does have its consequences……..  I still love ski touring, mountain biking, road riding, river rafting and fishing and try to do them as much as the schedule allows. I am grateful to be able to work with an amazing group of people who I am lucky to call friends.
