 A Little Bit about John

Over the last 10 or so years, John has been turning a passion for exploring wild places and meeting new and exciting people into a lifelong pursuit and sustainable career. This adventure has has given him the opportunity to guide a variety of activities all over the country and internationally, and teach groups of all ages how to climb, kayak, ice climb, ski, camp, and even ride a bike for the very first time. On his own adventures, he heads into the mountains in search of clean, remote, and secluded lines to either climb or ski (depending on the season). He is currently based in Portland, Oregon, and works as the Education Program Coordinator for the Mazamas.
