Where are you from originally?
Why did you choose to become a field advisor?
I’ve always loved the outdoors and wanted to travel. When I found out I could do both, professionally I took my first instructor job and never looked back.
How did you begin teaching/traveling?
My first major travel experience was studying abroad in Mongolia with SIT for one semester in college.
What are you most excited for about Winterline?
What’s the most important thing students and parents should know about you?
I really enjoy helping feel comfortable and confident when it’s their first time in the backcountry or immersed in nature.
What’s the most incredible thing you’ve seen or done while traveling?
Getting to track and trail the Big 5 (Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard) and other animals in South Africa.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
I’m good at finding four-leaf clovers and can make a flute out of a plastic straw.
