I love the outdoors. I enjoy rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering and of course canyoning. I work as a guide and instructor for Arizona Rock & Canyon Adventures. I also volunteer as a Rock Instructor and Outing Leader for the Arizona Mountaineering Club. I am certified professionally by both the American Canyoneering Association (ACA) as a Master Canyon Guide and by the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) as a Rock Instructor. I am also a nationally certified Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician (WEMT/NREMT).
I graduated from LaSalle Military Academy and then went on to earn my BA from the University of the Pacific and my MA from New York University. I have been a Real Estate Broker for the past 25 years. Originally from New York, I have also lived in California, Virginia and Florida before relocating to Arizona.
