Playing in the mountains has always been an important part of my life. I developed a love for alpine ski racing and hiking while growing up in Connecticut, then was drawn by the mountains of the American West to attend a small college in Salt Lake City. I was inspired to learn all the skills necessary to access even the craggiest and most remote corners of the wilderness. After college I worked as an outdoor educator and guide, while continuing to build my own fitness and abilities. I started teaching myself how to train intelligently, and now am sharing what I've learned with others.
Having a passion creates meaning, purpose, and joy in life. A good coach does more than just help their athlete become stronger. They support their athlete in sustaining and growing this passion, balancing it with their other priorities in life, and using their love for and dedication to their sport to guide them to be the best version of themself.
