Leader




I began backpacking and hiking in 1999 as a leader for my sons Scout troop, but gained my passion for backpacking in 2001 completing a 10 day 85 mile trip at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. Since then I began section hiking the Appalachian Trail, completing 1,700 miles as of 2017. I also completed the 272 mile Long Trail (LT) in July 2014.

I've been hiking in the White Mountains for the past 25 years with my family and the AMC. I have hiked all of the 48 four thousand foot peaks in New Hampshire and have also section hiked the Long Trail in Vermont. I enjoy traveling to more remote area and introducing people to the joys of spending time in the outdoors.
