Mazamas Leader Profile
Climbing Since: 1994
Mazamas Leader Since: 2009
I Like Climbing On: Everything
Mazamas Service: Financial Affairs Committee, Long Range Planning Committee, and now I work in the office at the MMC
Major Climbing Achievements: Mont Blanc via Cosmiques Route with my wife Mary for our Honeymoon and several great adventures in the North Cascades.
Climbing and Leadership Philosophy: I love being in the mountains and sharing the joys & challenges of climbing with new & old friends. I like to lead from the middle & for everyone on the team to have a great time.
Favorite Summit Treat: Jerky
Personal Information: I moved to Portland in 1998 from the midwest to be closer to the mountains. My wife Mary & I both joined Mazamas shortly after moving here and successively took BCEP, ICS & AR together. We now have a 5 year old son, Graham & are focused on teaching him to ski & climb. I started working at Mazamas in 2006 to stay better connected to my primary interests, my friends & climbing.
