As a local guide I have the knowledge and equipment to get you where you want to go and as a professional, award winning photographer and very experienced backcountry and outdoors man. I have the know-how, imagination and expertise to make your tour the adventure you’re looking for.

A little about me… at a very early age I recognized my love for the outdoors and it wasn’t long before I also developed a passion for photography, both of which I’ve been very lucky to have been able to combine with an extremely rewarding active duty and civilian career with the US Army and Department of Defense. After thirty years of finding myself among some of the most remote and beautiful landscape and wildlife in the world I returned to the area of my youth to finish my career with the Mountain Warfare Training Center outside of Bridgeport California. Now, as I hang up my working boots I’m looking forward to putting on my tour guide boots and sharing the beauty of the Carson Valley and Sierra Nevada mountains with others.
