I moved to Salida, CO in 2003 to raft guide on the Arkansas River with Independent Whitewater after guiding in Alaska, West Virginia, and Texas. I worked for the Guest Services Department at Monarch Mountain that winter and quickly fell in love with the mountains, rivers, and people in the Arkansas River Valley. I resigned from my 12 year position as Guest Services Manager at Monarch Mountain in Oct. 2015 to pursue a career in renewable energy and am now working with Colorado Solar Energy out of Buena Vista, CO. You can still find me skiing the slopes of Monarch on a regular basis as well as rafting, mountain biking, camping, hiking, backpacking, climbing, kayaking, and disc golfing all over Colorado and the West.
