The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness has been my second home and a place I have been exploring the last 25 years. From professionally guiding trips to orchestrating and overseeing outfitted trips I have gotten to know the various regions of the wilderness area and am excited to share my knowledge and experiences with whomever is looking to go!

I’ve been fortunate enough to go canoeing across the United States and Canada from the Rio Grande River along the U.S. Mexico Border to the Coppermine River above the Arctic Circle in Canada. When not paddling I try and spend as much time as possible riding my bike or schussing around on my skis.
